I wasted a lot of coal last winter (last winter? Is it over already?), I have a pile of half burned coal out there. I think it would be respectful to the gods to try and recover what I can. I think I need to start with 1/4" mesh and make something like a shaker that archaeologists use. Would love to find one of the contraptions you have Chris.
