I cleaned my grill of the old ash before cooking, like always. I used the same charcoal brand I've been using for two years, same lighter fluid, and same technique (covered cooking). The only thing I changed was that I opened up the bottom vents on my pit wider than normal.

I understand that the physics of what I did would create an updraft. I actually wanted that to happen. I was hoping my coals would burn hotter with the extra oxygen and that the updraft would create more of a convection thereby cooking the meat more evenly. However, I didnt' think it would create such a large updraft that it would aerosolize the ash.

Have you guys ever had anything like that happen to you? I'd never heard of that happening before.



:-? I cook on my grills about 5 times a week and I can't remember that ever happening to me. Had the charcoal possibly been wet?

Actually, I think this is the bag that got wet one day. Does that matter?

Yep, that would be the problem. Wet charcoal besides not cooking like it should, will also come apart and ash up. Just throw that bag away, and get you a new bag. ;-D
