@AuraOutdoors Ash Tool Review

Ash Tool for Big Green Egg, Kamado Joe and Other Charcoal Grills

I received a Slow N Sear 2.0 for Christmas last year.  When first using it I filled it up and placed a bunch of lit coals on one end and left it alone.

It held temps like a champ for a long while.  It is really built well. It protects the porcelain on your kettle from high heat crazing.  It really is a nice piece of equipment.

However about two thirds of the way through my brisket temps were dropping.  I kept adding coals but was having a hell of a time keeping the temps up.

This was not a design flaw of the Slow N Sear 2.0.  It was because the spent ashes were built up at the bottom of the Slow N Sear prohibiting air flow.  Once I figured this out, all I needed to do was to knock the ash down and clear it out so the air would feed the coals and I could regain the temps I was shooting for.  Totally on me.

Down the dock I generally use the same set of tongs for everything.  Cooking and ash management.  This is only because I’m cooking for myself and a couple of the animals I work with.

The Aura Ash tool is a great accessory, especially it’s build quality and price.

It’s $13.49 with prime free shipping on Amazon and at that price it’s a total no-brainer.

It has a large hoop on one end that fits perfectly on a Mastertouch handle.  It’s frankly overbuilt stainless construction and does exactly what it’s advertised as doing.  maintaining your ashes so you don’t have to use your cooking tongs to do it.

It can stay outdoors all the time so you don’t have to go searching for it.

I have this one at home and I’m going to order another for the dock right now.
