This has ALOT of grease to manage

Before I had my ash pan I did what you do but then I'd let the clean up window close b/c of procrastination and then my ash and grease will harden to concrete.

So does cooking on a UDS in general, so if you’re worried about a SLIGHTLY increased chance of cancer, what are you doing cooking on one?
https://m.phys.org/news/2017-07-anti...eciphered.html

“Antibody against carcinogenic substance deciphered
When fat reacts with glowing coal at a barbecue, a substance chemists call benzopyrene is created. It is a widespread environmental toxin that can cause cancer in humans.”

So I should increase my chances of cancer by adding another carcinogenic?

Ok makes sense

If you read your link, it referred to inhaling large quantities, such as when mechanics pour a bunch on the floor to clean up large spills several times a day without masks. You’re not doing that here whereas if you’re cooking on a UDS regularly without a deflector and so the fat is dripping on the coals, you are exposing yourself to cancer causing substances every time you cook.

Bottom line: It’s such a SLIGHT increase in cancer risk as to be almost neglible in either case above, much as the overblown studies a few months ago that screamed “red meat causes cancer” (further in-depth reading revealed less than a 0.5% increased risk, as I recall). You’re in the wrong hobby if you worry about that kind of stuff.

Sheesh, anything and everything may cause cancer if inhaled. Or ingested, bathed in, walked by...
Life causes cancer.

Organic gardeners use DE for bug control, works great for snails and slugs.

I understand well the supposed risks of eating meat and the risk of cooking meat on coals. That doesn't mean because I'm taking some risk that all risk becomes ok.

Yeah, we all got different risk perception and tolerances. As mentioned above, hippy dippy organic farmers are just fine with being exposed to DE on their crops and you don’t want it around your cooker that has red meat dripping fat on hot coals. Alrighty then. Different strokes for different folks.
