I have had my large BGE for about six weeks. I have learned tons on this forum and things are going pretty well. However, one thing is bugging me.
I notice a fair amount of ash and small charcoal pieces go down through the air holes in the sides of the fire pot. They are obviously accumulating between the outside of the fire pot and the inside of the main body of the Egg. The fire ring is heavy and possibly somewhat fragile. The fire pot is even heavier. The whole egg is mounted in a table, considerably above floor level. I am getting to be an old man and lifting that stuff out safely by myself seems to be risky. When my adult son is at home he can help, but...
Anyway, do y'all see it as necessary to periodically remove the fire pot to clean under it? If yes, do you have any tips for accomplishing it when two strong men are not available?
