Most forget that part, some even leave the ash in the burn pot and ashing grate....please don't......
Clean that piping up also and give it a shot of your favorite oil......WD 40 is quick .....
Well Whistlenut, between you and my first lady, it's still burning a month later
Now I'm at 5.075 ton and the wife is giving in.
I was all geared up to start cleaning and preserving the AHS this afternoon but didn't anticipate on it still burning 3 days after it's last bag of coal. Maybe this weekend. Saved a bucket of ash. I'll give her a real good cleaning head to toe. Gonna try some Amsoil HD metal protector and see how that works.
Sure has been nice though and we're both looking forward to next fall already.
