    Wall mounted charcoal bin?

    I have been considering getting a wall mounted dog food bin for charcoal dispensing. Has anyone here found one which has been a success? Amazon has one for about $30 and one for over $100, just wondering whether or not any of you good folks can either save me some money or persuade me to spend too bloody much.

    Add a foot operated slide gate so you can fill the chimney hands free.

    Good grief, I can see the "Gyro Gearloose" modifications laying out in front of me!
    Auger feed, horizontal dispensing, adjustable measurement, the mind boggles!
    I my regret starting the thread!
    An auger in a 55 gallon drum, add a hopper lid......
    I better just stick with bags, that might get weird!

    After looking up food dispensers, I have come to the conclusion that I would need a homemade one on rollers to move around. Just not enough wall space available to me. Kind of like 4 dispensers, so you can choose your preferance at any given time

    Like George said it depends on logistics. For me, it's easier to carry a bag of charcoal to where I'm working compared to one chimney.

    Different smokes for different folks. Wish the Dollar Store sold gas!

    George: I'm a HUGE fan of dolly's. If it's not big enough I just take them apart and use the longer ends for new short ones and cut a 2X4 to size for length and assemble.

    I have dolly's for my chest freezer (keezer = keg + freezer, for beer), upright freezer (food) and my WSM 22.5".
