The Ash Tool actually has a double function: you can very easily remove the ash from your Big Green Egg with it, but you can also use it to spread the charcoal evenly before igniting the EGG. This practical tool’s best mate is the Ash Removal Pan.
In order to optimally control the temperature during EGGing, there should be as little ash in the EGG as possible. Thankfully the Ash Tool loves to make things tidy. You can use the metal poker to push all the ash to the side before using the EGG, which will benefit your dishes. The Ash Tool is available in 3 sizes, and after use you can simply hang it next to your other tools.
