Default Weber Kettle Ash Tool

The last time I used the Weber, it started to rain hard just as I was finishing cooking. I slapped the lid on, closed the vents, and went in the house. Shame on me, I went inside and forgot about it. I went to use it tonight and found it with a fair amount of ash in the kettle bowl, most of it wet.

Looking for something to scoop it out with, and I opened the recycle bin and had an idea. With an empty salad dressing bottle, a knife, a pair of scissors, and about 5 minutes time, I came up with this. Works great.

I use a milk gallon jug with the same cut out it holds a lot and lasts a couple months and its not like I run out of milk gallon jugs if you know what I mean. Innovating to the task brings a good feeling to all
