I've seen several people suggest using Gamma Seal lid with your standard 5 gallon home depot/lowes buckets.

I just picked up a few food grade 5 gal buckets and the tight sealing screw top lids at HD. Before that was just keeping bags lying around, think I will like the buckets much better. Better moisture and inadvertent spill protection, stackable, easy to dispense, etc.
New to pellets, so I've only had a few bags so far, still trying things out.

Yup, nothing beats the look of the Traeger pails! Do you label them any special way?

While not the most cost effective (had to keep the wife from knowing about the second order of 4 lol) - I love the look of the Traeger pellet pail with pouring lid. I now have 8 of these. :)

Now this might be the ultimate pellet storage idea.. a used coffee bean dispenser!

* Every container holds little less then 1 20pound bag

I use the 5 Gallon White Bucket & Gamma Seal Lid - Food Grade Plastic Pail & Gamma2 Screw Seal Tight Lid found on Amazon. A bit pricey but I like the color coded lids.

How many bags will fit into a 5 gallon bucket? Waiting on my grill to arrive, but want to be prepared to use it ASAP.

I usually put in one 20lb bag per bucket, it may hold a bit more though but I usually fill the bin on grill then replenish the bucket.

@primeone Love the tip on the gamma seal lids. They were a bit less than $8 on Amazon yesterday. That and a couple $3 dollar food safe buckets from Wal-mart, and you have a pellet storage container for less than $10. Now to work on adding to the collection and a better looking labeling system.
