Clean Burn - worked okay

Did a clean burn at 600-650 for a couple hours.  Still had to go at it with green scouring pad after to get rid of the dried out stuff.  I was expecting/hoping for a white ashy result that wiped away easily, but not so much.  Maybe I need to go nuclear to do that, but not going to chance doing that.

    Have gone all out Nuclear more that once...only thing it did was turn the area above the fire grate white. Was only in one area, was about 4" long. Looked like a triangle.

    There's clean, and there's "clean enough".

    The grate needs to be clean, the rest of it is clean enough for what I use my egg for.

    The fire bowl is creamy, honey colored. The fire ring is splotchy black. The top of the fire ring is as black as the top bowl and thermometer probe.

    The grate is clean as a whistle. That's where the food goes, that's where I feed my family. The rest is just less important to me. It's as clean as it needs to be.

    BBQ is a celebration of culture in America. It is the closest thing we have to the wines and cheeses of Europe. 

    Drive a few hundred miles in any direction, and the experience changes dramatically.
