Default newbie-removing embers after a fire

Hello, I recently purchased a mobile oven from Fire Within. Can anyone tell me how long I can should let the embers burn before removing them to my ash can? Is it ok to let them burn out and clean the next morning? Thanks

I wait and normaly clean mine out before the next time I fire it again, never when it still has hot embers.

If you are into gardening the ash is a great source of potassium.
If you can mange to remove the charcoal/embers and cool them down (metal bucket water)
The charcoal is great bio-char for your garden

I vote for leaving them in the oven until they are well and truly dead.
Of course, I like baking bread, so I remove the fire while some of the embers are still going, but I'm careful to the point of paranoia.
Most people seem to store the firewood in the oven stand, myself included. One unnoticed ember and things could get ugly........

Get a metal garbage can with a tight fitting lid. Fashon a 1/2" metal construction cloth sieve about 1/4 of the depth from the top. Anything that falls below the cloth goes in the garden. What stays on top is called lump charcoal. Lump is great for starting your next fire, and other applications if you have other grills .

G'day
I the winter evening it doesn't get freezing cold but cold enough when you not used to it in the sub tropics. A tin bucket full of holes with any any excess coals is always crowded around and enjoyed by all.
Always have a wet sack under the bucket to protect the plastic ag grate , you'll see a puff of steam if you drop a coal. No I've not dropped many
Regards Dave

I have a 5 gal galvanized trash can with a tight fitting lid. I usually just clean out the oven when everything is burned to ash - but when I bake bread, I have pulled out live coals and put them in there. Slam on the lid and secure, and they go out pretty quickly.
