You can't get away from that residual ash. when the ash falls into the bucket, it kicks up the lighter-than-air powder. The next time you empty your ash pan outside, just throw the contents onto the ground (double check the wind direction!!). That Hiroshima type ash cloud that you create is the same thing that happens inside the stove, only on a much smaller scale.
