You can dump the ash out but after the first time it sticks to all grease build up on the sides you will probably change your mind. Don't do the "Trash Man Slam" or you will oval out the top like I did and lid wont fit as nice.

Norco, Is there a way to get a side view of your charcoal holder. I can't quite figure how you did the bolts.
