I wasted a lot of coal last winter (last winter? Is it over already?), I have a pile of half burned coal out there. I think it would be respectful to the gods to try and recover what I can. I think I need to start with 1/4" mesh and make something like a shaker that archaeologists use. Would love to find one of the contraptions you have Chris.

Or get a nice Chinese : http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/27881 ... _coal.html
" Hey I just got a zinxiang dongzhen!"
"Omigod did you see the doctor about it???!!!"
"No, it's not a disease!"
" Oh, it's an exotic foo-foo dog!"
" No, It's an awesome coal sifter!'

Too lazy to drive that far...
