Default A Very Simple Egg Ash Pan

After emptying the ashes on my Egg a couple of times and getting half of them on the floor, I thought "there has to be a better way".

I modified a cheap dustpan so that it fits tightly against the ceramic below the bottom stainless track. Works soooo much better than a flat edge dustpan. (even if my cutout is not centered)

Just cut out so it is the same curvature as the Egg and wider than the opening.

Nice Idea. I just take out the fire grate and clean with dust pan and shop Vac.
