As I’ve mentioned here a number of times, I cook primarily on a Big Green Egg. For the first two years that I owned this cooker, I simply used a bucket and the BGE ash tool to rake the ashes out of the bottom of the cooker. That worked great until I built my new egg table. Now, it’s impossible to place bucket under the BGE directly, making ash removal a bit tougher.
A friend of mine happened to be in the BBQ store recently and came home with tales of an ash pan that was curved to fit the outside of the Big Green Egg. So, I acquired one of these for myself. This works like a champ and has made ash removal much easier now the egg is on the new table.
