Picked up a Weber pellet bag and I have to say I’m surprised how much I like it. It makes lifting 20 lbs of pellets a piece of cake with the handle. I only dropped two pellets while making the transfer from bag to bag.
I haven’t used it yet to put pellets in the EX6 but that’ll be next.
I put in a bag of hickory and I’m going to mix some in with my grill master blend for some ribs soon.
This thing didn’t look like much at first but it’s well built, sturdy and the handle is legit.

Ditto on all the dittos and trittos ...didn’t was to say quadtritto. Also, is it fairly air and moisture tight? Could it be left outdoors?

Bruno...? Calling Bruno...........? Earth to Bruno.
haha, sorry guys working today to afford all my Weber crap!!
it doesn’t appear to have a funnel, it does have 2 straps on the bottom to apparently make pouring easier.
As soon as I add some I will be sure to follow up.
It does seem like it would be water tight, however I wouldn’t keep pellets outside in wet weather even in this.

So you can see it’s not quite a funnel but a sturdy pointed exterior.
I really like this thing, I may order another. It’s easy to transfer from the pellet bag to the SmokeFire and I really like the handle.
Watch Weber’s video of how to seal and carry pellets with the bag on their web-site if this is something that interests you.

For what it’s worth, after mixing up a blend of pellets in the bag today I ordered another one.
I like the handle and the way it seals.

I just use my wife’s cats leftover plastic cat litter boxes and a scoop. They have a snap off lid and are stackable.

Best part - zero cost.

I hope you wash them out and there is no residual “fresh step” scent in the buckets! 😂

Picked up a couple of the bags with my smoker order. Think one of these would be perfect to bring charcoal when we go camping.

These look like my drybags to take camping and canoeing. its the same type of closure etc. if they are cheap enough. I have left drybags out in the rain and dropped them in the river when capsizing and they hold out the water well. i have my pellets in the:

they stay completely dry
I have 6 of them, one for each flavor (plus a mix) stored in my garage and they have worked well for over 7 months. Best of all, each holds two bags (40#) of Weber pellets.

I definitely need to invest in something as I lost more than half a bag of pellets over the summer because of a little moisture and a bad seal on a container. :( Thanks for the leads!

The weber bags are exactly the same concept as a dry bag. Got a little strap on the bottom to make pouring more controllable. I just ordered one of these Buddeez containers to see which I prefer, the price is definitely more in my range (sub $20).
