Default WSM charcoal grate shaker mod

Hey Brethren here's a mod I came up with to shake the ashes from my WSM charcoal grate and it actually works.

"Grate" idea.
Where did you get that piece that connects to the grate?

Very good idea/mod. I can see a similar mod working for a UDS too.

Don't you find the threaded rod "grates" against the sides of the hole it fits through? I would think you would be better off to grind of that section of threads.

Cool mod by the way.

I like, I just get so scared putting holes in my WSM. Guess I'll have to just continue the good O'le shake the lid trick.

Great idea and very simple, I am going to print this out to give to my friend that bought my WSM. I could see adapting it to a UDS but I use the size 13 method on mine, works like a charm.
