Ash Hook - any homemade designs?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone using an ash hook in their oven like this one?

Attachment 34368

I've been using an old 2x4 to move the coals around, and truth be told - it works just fine. But I have been reading the "Art of Wood Fired Cooking" and it talks about an ash hook to move coals, and I got curious.

I thought I might weld something up for use in my oven - but thought there may be designs here on the forum that I could use as a starter.

Anyone build/use such a tool?

I use this. I bent it a tad beyond vertical so I can rake against the back wall.

FB has sold an ash rake which is a variant of both.

I bought a pooper scooper from Petco. Replaced the handle with a longer piece of EMT pipe - works greet.

Made from 3 mm aluminum so it will not damage the hearth brick, but strong enough to push a log around. Sorry it ain't pretty but it works. One thing I discovered about making tools is the handles start off to long and all of mine have been shortened a couple ins at a time till they feel right
