100% right. It helps a lot to do so.
Oh yeah, ok - I have to open the ash pan door to access the grates to shake them. I was leaving the top door closed while I would shake. These conditions surely sent a big qyantity of air thru the coal bed to carry fly ash. I'll shake with both doors open and see how that helps.
Thanks for the great advise, you guys rock
