Cleaing out your firebox?
 
For those out there with a Big baby DB or similar, do you have any tricks or reccomendations for cleaning out your firebox, other than taking a shovel to the coals? I'm using the fire door from the Vogelzang kit and not the big side door design.

A transfer shovel for the big pieces, a wet/dry vac for the rest

I know this won't work if you have close by neighbors, but I use a Leaf Blower - LOL it works great, but makes a hell of a cloud.

Last time I cleaned mine out I used my shopvac with no filter.. did basically the same thing.. my neighbor thought something was on fire and came running around the house to see what was going on!

This just sounds dirty, should this be in the Wood Pile? ;)

If you had used an open head drum for the FB it would be very easy to pop of the lid and rake it out.
I like the leaf blower Idea:biggrin1:

Save & reuse any big chunks, then shopvac (uh, wait till fire is out and it's cold:flame:)
