Has anyone tried putting an ash pan underneath the fire grate in the XL and lifting it out the top instead of using the ash tool to fish the ash out the lower damper? The fire grate is so wide that I find using the tool is kind of a drag. It takes forever And doesn't really work as well on the left side because of the way the tool is built. It seem like it would be easier to come out the top since I need to pull the fire grate anyways if I want to get to get the ash well anyways. Has anybody done this? I tried searching but did not find a discussion on this.
