UDS Pooper Scooper
 
Made a scoop out of an old handle and a piece of steel for the UDS. I didn't like turning the UDS over to clean out the bottom ash and charcoal. When I built the UDS, I also wasn't smart enough to have the bung hole on the bottom, to use as a clean out hole. So I had this idea instead. Works good enough between major cleanings. I worry about all the built up ash eating away at the bottom of the barrel. I'm sure it will help and now I can quit thinking about it.

Pappy that's a great idea!! :thumb:

you can also go to Petsmart/Petco and get one of the pooper scoopers they sell. All that needs to be done is to round the edge some to the circumference of your drum and your good to go. :thumb:

Great ingenuity!:clap2:

As far as the ash eating away at your drum....I THINK that it's only corrosive when it gets wet. Could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure.

Either way, if you're not into the "trash can dump" manouver, then doing it that way is necessary! Good stuff!:thumb:
PLUS....great thinking making it rounded in shape to get into the corners of that round drum!

Whatever you do.....I hope you're not throwing away that charcoal!!!!

Great idea!

Why is there good charcoal in the bottom of your drum?

The space between the bars on my charcoal basket are a little to wide. Sometimes a couple of pieces will slip through the cracks when I lower it into the drum. If I place them just right nothing is lost. It only the top, outer edge that falls through. I should to add some expanded metal to keep everything inside.

I sift through it and re-use it.
