Good idea. You could also fashion one from an empty plastic jug , I bet.
16 bucks for a scoop to clean out your grill bottom? Come on!

I just pick mine up and dump the ashes in a metal bucket.

I usually carry the bottom to the tree line, and dump the ashes there. After it cools of course.

I use the "dump ash into aluminum garbage can" mod.

Once the can is half full, I dump it into a large garbage bag. No need for shovels.

Default Coal catcher

I use this to dump coals from my WSM. Easy way to separate the coals from the ashes. I reuse the old coals for quick cooks like steaks or chops. Works great.

The large overweight black lab is my taste tester. She loves my smoker.

Cut and shape the bottom of a gallon bleach jug. Built in handle, cheap, and won't scratch.

Shovels? We don't need no stinking shovels.
