Kick Ash Basket

What is the Kick Ash Basket exactly?

Enjoy better, faster, and easier cooks with the new Kick Ash Basket™


Simply lift out used charcoal

The Kick Ash Basket lets you simply lift out used charcoal and ash before every cook.

Benefit: You can dispose of ashes and be ready for your next cook in seconds—no muss, no fuss. Just lift the Fire Basket out and give it a few shakes over a trash can (make sure the fire is completely out!). Set the Kick Ash Basket back in place, add some fresh charcoal, and you're ready to go in seconds. Any small amount of ash that falls into the bottom of the grill can be easily removed with a scoop or vacuum.

Small particles fall through

Spaces between the Kick Ash Basket's rings allow these small particles to fall through when you shake the ashes out.

Benefit: You start each cook with an ideal fuel load, whether you're searing steaks or going low and slow. You get easier starts and more even burning.

Better ventilation

The Kick Ash Basket holds the charcoal slightly away from the sides of the firebox.

Benefit: Much less clogging of these vent holes, for better, more uniform burning.

Open up vents

The Kick Ash Basket's wire construction allows much freer airflow than the stock grate.

Benefit: Open up the vents and you can achieve high temperatures faster than you've been able to reach them before. Create perfectly-seared steaks and chops, incredible “brick oven” pizza, and more. Note: you can use the Kick Ash Basket with or without your lower charcoal grate underneath it.

Lift out hot coals

The Kick Ash Basket lets you lift out the hot remaining charcoal and dispose of it properly. CAUTION: Don't be a dumb ash! Obviously, you need to use some kind of serious heat resistant gloves.

Benefit: Lifting out the left over hot coals allows your grill to cool down faster than ever before because you can leave the lid open and let it chill. You'll be able to pack up your valuable cooking and entertaining tool so that you can confidently enjoy the game!
