Thats really nice if you have to reach into the firebox, and don't want to get burned. My Tractor-Supply Chicken-feed scoop has the handle over the scoop for perfect balance, but your hand will get hot if you aren't quick.

Just built this one a few weeks ago... 6" fully welded seam 22ga with 6" 'fishmouth' at the business end... Weighs 2Lbs empty and 10 pounds filled with oiled rice... Great for filling narrow hoppers... I use it to top off my Alaska that sits next to my indoor bin and to fill the 35Lb 8" cylinders I made to truck rice upstairs to the Mag Stoker...

HAHAHA! Yep, but loading it without gloves makes sure you do it fast. If your a little bit too slow, it cleans off all the knuckle hairs really good :o

I use this to load with:
http://www.amazon.com/TEKTON-7676-16-In ... pd_sbs_k_2


it's light, holds over 10 lbs i'm sure, and wide enough to fill the whole stove,
3 or 4 of these into the Mark III just about covers what I need every 12 hrs.
and cheap!

:D
