Cleaning Ash From Around Firebox
The area outside the perimeter of my firebox gets pretty badly clogged up with ash and lump chips as a result of normal combustion & also my stirring the used lump between cooks. The result is that I get reluctant fire startups and then uneven burning... so I have to dismantle and brush out every few weeks.[p]Does anyone have an easy non-vacuum-cleaner technique for cleaning around the firebox perimeter without dismantling the Egg?[p]Thanks!
