    I carry a brute garage can to hold some salt. Is there any type of adsorption pillow or something I can put in there to pull some of the moisture out of it so it won't freeze?

    Any reason you couldn't use treated salt? My bags never freeze up like the salt bags I had when I used a tailgate salter.

    I use 5 gal pails. I cover them with heavy canvas. I fold it a couple of times to get 3 layers.
