Default Re: What do you do with your coals?

Well, I for one, don't have children involved very often and i appreciate your comments for with children should be different. I tend to agree with Kim and simply tell them to stay away when purging the oven!

I have a dump area where I put the ashes. They can actually be really helpful if you have acid soil. Unfortunately my soil is basic so I can't use much in my compost but if you think you have acid soil it would be worth checking out and learning how much you can use....

It is the ash that is strongly alkaline, the coals are ok. I usually pour out the water which takes the soluble alkalinity out too. Leaves which break down in compost are generally acidic, so it can be a good way to balance them.

I usually want to fire the oven back up for pizza after my bake so I just shovel the coals into my charcoal barbecue grill and close the cover. It's easier to shovel them back after the bake than it would be if they were in a pail or trashcan. I was glad discover a use for my barbecue since, once I tried a steak on my Tuscany grill in the oven, I doubt I'll ever use the barbecue again.

I usually have partial logs as well as ashes. It all goes in the barbecue.
