Storage of Spices

Postby lkt1954 » Fri May 28, 2021 10:55 pm

I have a separate building from our house (think of a detached garage) that I do all my cooking/smoking in. While it is built and insulated like a house would be it has no HVAC in it, thus it get hot during the summer (Texas heat) and cold in the winter.
Knowing heat is not good for spices, I have been storing my spices in the freezer to keep the heat from destroying them. Not too sure this is good on them either, which leads me to my question here.

I'm thinking a getting a really good insulated cooler (yeti, rtic, ect) to use as storage for my spices. With getting a cooler like this I would think it should protect spices from the heat, cold, light and humidity.

My question do you thing this would work or is the inside eventually going to get either hot or cold depending on the season.

Thanks

Not a thermo expert by any means but I would think over time the interior of the cooler would stabilize with the outside/inside ambient temperatures.

Store them inside good seal-able plastic tote boxes in your house. Take them to the cook shack as needed. Fill the coolers with beer.

And welcome aboard.

I'm a thermo expert - to keep the interior temperature different from the ambient temperature is not possible without some (essentially) continuous energy input, same as a refrigerator or freezer, or oven in the other direction for simplification. Insulation only slows the rate of equilibration for the cooler interior.

That's what I was thinking that over time temperatures would be the same.

Guess i have two choices: either store in the freezer or put them in a tote to keep in the house, the carry back and forth.

Thanks for the input.
