    I found this that is similar. Most everything else I saw had either a flat blade or was curved the other direction.

    Or this one.

    Or bend the handle of this one.

    I’ll post another pic tomorrow to show you a better shot of the curve.

    Alabama Smoke It was a few months ago when I did it, but using the smaller 2” or so putty knife, the curvature of the bowl wasn’t a problem. The blade of the putty knife still rested flat against the bowl. It did work better though going up and down vs. side to side. I tried a 4” also, and with that wider one, the bowl curvature did present a problem. If there was a way to make a curve in it, that would work great probably.

    I wonder if one were to take a 3 or 4 inch putty knife, and using either a vice and pair of channel lock pliers or simply draping the knife blade between two raised surfaces (perhaps two pieces of 2x4 lumber) and tapping the suspended center portion of the scrapper with a hammer might give satisfactory results? The bend in this way would not be perfect but I bet you could get it closer than just a flat blade..

    Upon the advice of Red Man I used a putty knife for cleaning the baked on crud in the bowl of my kettle. Worked great! It’s not curved of course, but that wasn’t really too much of an issue at all. A 2” or 3” putty knife worked really well going mainly from top to bottom.

    I have that one and it comes in handy. Too bad they don’t make any more. The backwards handle is the genius idea.

    zinfella - Like you, I didn't come up with anything on an internet search for these. I found one item that showed an ash scoop that Weber made for their 18" kettles. The curvature of the scoop was matched to the kettle. It looked like a nice accessory, but is also no longer available. I suspect with the integrated ash sweeps on the Weber's, these accessory ash removal tools have lost any popularity they once had.

    Don’t have the answer for the OP’s “Easy Embers” but I have found an el cheapo way to get ash out of my kettles. Take a look at the “Scoop N Scrape” (dry wallers might recognize this). Caution it is plastic so only an option for when fires are out. Found it on Amazon.
    Now if you want to spend some money but still not as practical as the OP’s option the SS Breeo ash cleaning tool might work. The price of that puppy does not work for me.

    Nope, I have no clue as to how to get any of them. I posted the pics in hopes that somebody here might help with locating them. I can't be the only person that ever bought one, but then nobody else has fessed up.

Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
