Here's how it's supposed to go.
I knew I had seen that post on here before. I checked tonight and my grate is set the right way (dumb luck I guess).

Thanks. I guess that is why the High Que grate is more expensive - because it is more durable.

Not sure how you are trying to clear your Fire Grate but a wiggle rod works great. Stick it in through the Intake door and up through the holes in the Fire Grate and wiggle.
I had tried with the ash tool, which doesn't quite fit in the holes of the grate, and so was easy to almost tip it over and dump the coals. I just finished making a wiggle rod before I saw your post. Cost about $8 to make with 1/4" rod and a file handle from HD... and my crazy good bending skills! Its about 23" long. Should be much easier to clear ash from the holes now.
