I just built my table for a large and I am wondering what all you peeps with tables are using for ash removal.
Please show pics if you can.
Just seems like a tight space to remove the ash.

    I use the BGE ASH PAN in my egg on my table. Reason is it is shaped to pop into the track for the draft door and it makes less mess. Just rake it in with the ash tool and give it a hard tap or 2 to move the ash down and remove.

    ... and anything left behind on the table, just suck it up with a shop vac or blow it off.
  • Just a 2 gal shop vac from HD or Lowes. Just be sure no active coals are left in the egg.

    The 0.97 ash tool. Simply cut out a platic dust pan.

    I don't have a table just yet since my deck is still under construction. But I can tell you this, I will never use anything except a shop vac to clean my egg. It keeps all of those small pieces off your floor. I will shove the vac hose into to egg while I am stirring old lump. It is the bomb.
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!
  • I use a shopvac only takes minute.
  • Walmart bag, cheap, easy & flexible

    Man!! I thought that I was frugal.You are the girl Sue.Guys at work would tease me about tearing one half of a sheet off of roll of Bounty to wipe whatever up.
  • :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
    You have Bounty? WOW!
  • I have a short-handled plastic snow shovel (it's actually adjustable) that is made to carry in your trunk for emergencies. I slide it under the egg and scrape into it. Very similar to the plastic dustpan except that with feet and stone, the shovel goes right under the EGG and holds itself in place.

    I also have an old 4" housepainting brush that I use to sweep off the misc dust.
  • Sorry, no photo, but I set my egg slightly over the paver in the front. That way I can slide a old cookie sheet pan under the front edge. Then just scrape all ash into it for disposal.
