Ash removal from WFO
« on: June 03, 2011, 07:02:13 PM »
Just curious,

Would a shop vac be a good way to remove ash from a Wood Fired Oven?  Thanks,

Scott D.

Once the ashes and oven are cooled you can.

In case embers are still alive, fireplace stores sell stuff like this also.

About every third or fourth fire,    I use the shop vac to do a thorough clean. Note that I do it before the next fire not after the last.
