Default burning out the grease?

Somebody mentioned throwing half a chimney of charcoal into the waterpan, to clean out the grease. Does that work, or will it be something I'll wish I hadn't done?

That's a new one to me. I always tuffed it out with a SOS pad. However befor using next time line it with foil, easier clean up. IMHO.

Think the charcoal to help with grease would be a cluster fark.

Thanks...

I've been putting the water pan and the racks in the firebox while everything is heating up. Just thought maybe there was something better that I was missing out on. I'll just keep going the way I have been.

Why the hell would you want to clean out the grease?

Up north here, its winter insulation.

And grease fires just char the outside a little.

No big thing

Seemed to have some site problems earlier so couldn't reply sooner. If the inside of your cook chamber looks nice and black and doesn't smell foul, leave it alone. I built a fire in the water pan once, really attempting to clean the grill grates, and basically burned all that good seasonong from the cook chamber walls. I do suggest always cleaning the water pan like Phil said - turn it upside down on a bed of hot coals. It will burn clean in seconds. Clean your grates with a good brush.

A Drain Mod Mod!

I was thinking something along the lines of adding a mod that was a cross between a drain and a potato cannon (you got to go search that on yahoo and check out what those people are doing to potatos)

The grease can go down the drain mod and then into a small cyclindrical compartment (size of a soup can on it side). One there is enough in there, the grease will congeal.

Close the drain going back up into the smoke box, Then slide on angled sleeve, pointing skyward, over grease chamber and lock in place.

Start up the air compressor and fill the small chamber behind the grease chamber with about 600psi.

Now go get the kids, lawnchairs, and neighbors.

Point the beast away from you, release the valve, and watch a 5 # ball of grease go shooting over into the next neighborhood.

Turn around to roaring laughter and applause.

All right! I won't lite a fire in the smokebox.

But let's talk about modding the drain mod to just spew the stuff into the firebox. Then I'd never even have to think about it.
