Kick Ash Basket
I have been using the Kick Ash Basket products since 2015 when I first met its creator, Chad Romzek, at Eggtoberfest. During this event held in Stone Mountain, GA, I was first introduced to the basket and its benefits. This was the first generation basket and we were all blown away by the added airflow that it provided in our Big Green Eggs! Chad had provided a few so we immediately added the baskets to every egg we could. One of our dishes involved frying so you can imagine how much this helped. As the spectators came by our tents they would notice the Kick Ash Basket (KAB) and wonder what it was for and how it worked. Most kamado owners only knew one thing. You have a cast iron grate full of holes in the bottom and you stir your ash and charcoal with a metal rod until hopefully most of the ash makes it through the tiny holes. Minds were stretched that day for sure. Chad sold out of every KAB that day and we all made sure we had ours on the way! The KAB was the first of its kind to market and has been copied by other companies. It still remains to be the best and most efficient basket out there.
