handy for pouring in charcoal and cleaning out ash

saw this on some invention show a few months back. after blowing black snot (wind shifted on me as I was filling the egg) I am considering grabbing one of these for BBQ days :)


I don't know if I can part with freaking $40 for a t-shirt though. pricey.

    Dumping lump is about as close as I ever want to get to experiencing what coal miners must tolerate, have no idea how they do it. I'm lucky that there is usually a mild breeze (thermal) near my egg so when I dump, I am up wind - still I take a deep breath, dump and then run away. 
    Why not just keep an M95 mask close to your lump storage?

    Just hold your breath instead of buying some ugly shirt.

    Bandana? Would be less expensive than the shirt. You could even get a green one!

    I will either dump and run or do it by hand. 

    For some reason that sentence doesn't sound right to me.

    I think its the "do it by hand" part...

    [sorry, couldn't resist. Is there a penalty box or something i should make my way to?]

    Just as @henapple said I use Ozark Oak as well and never have any issues, even at the end of a bag there is a tiny amount of dust.

    I usually put my shirt up over my face...that didn't quite do the trick this last time. Seeing the black snot was a little off-putting considering I had to have inhaled some of that into my lungs. The thing is, I did also hold my breath until I thought the "cloud" of dust had gone away.

    Anyway, I am going to keep a mask with my egg stuff for now. like I said, I think $40 is a bit steep for that shirt...but some of you people have like 5 eggs...so what is another $40 :)
