^^Best piece of advice
Also use a disposable aluminum pan under your fire grate with the one end folded down for air flow. When it fills with ash pull it out and dump. Unless you don't have a side door on your firebox
Just looked at the model. It probably has a small baffle on the side of the firebox. Get yourself a piece of steel that can reach in that hole and drag out the ash. I used a bent spatula.

To part or not to part: that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to part and suffer the slings and arrows of ostentatious brothers or to not part when faced with a sea of dissent, and by compromise end it? To part: to succeed. Forever more: and by succeed to say we win.
Yeah it looks good...but how does it smell?
