Powder in a steel cabinet/Black Powder

Does anyone have a safe method of storing the powder for a black Powder gun. I have partial cans of FFF and FF. These metal cans would be like a bomb then also, I guess. What about metal cans of regular IMR 4350?? Would they have the same affect of blowing instead of burning?

Caution: Don't try burning a tablespoon of black powder to see if it is still good, like I did. It was 10 years old, so I tried it before going hunting. I went into the house with a smile on my black face and no eye brows, lashes or hair on the front of my head. I am lucky that it was all that I lost. My wife laughed till she had tears in her eyes.
