Default New CS450 Question about ash.

Hey guys,
I just bought a CS450 and fired it up today. I did the initial burn in and then seasoned the grill and ran it for a while longer. The initial burn in was about 40 mins at 400-600 (I was playing with the dial). When this initial burn was over I noticed a lot of ash all throughout the unit.

This is the pot


And this was the grease shield



I was using cookshack mesquite pellets. Is this normal for the initial burn or is this something I need to try to address. After I ran it for the seasoning I did not notice as much, but I had taken the unit apart and vacummed it out and re-seated the burn-plate.

Thoughts?

Looks normal to me. Try using BBQers Delight pellets to see if there's any difference.

I have 80 lbs of the cookshack pellets to get through first :) Although I do have some hickory and fruit as well.

If this looks normal I am wondering how much of that will end up on the food that I am cooking?

None if you have your heat shield and drip tray installed correctly.
