A couple of my readers inquired about How to remove ashes from a charcoal grill from the ashpan that is just below the Weber One-Touch Silver. Well, this may seem like a rather obvious question but, to be honest, after I bought my Weber One Touch, I was wondering the exact same thing. At first glance, the ash pan of the Weber One Touch appears to be in a stationary location and not easily removed to dispose of the ashes. Well, there certainly is a solution!
Here’s a quick youTube video of me removing the ash pan from my Weber 22 1/2″ Kettle Grill which has the same mechanism as the 18″ One Touch Silver. You can also check out the images below this video of me removing the ash pan from my Weber 18 1/2″ Weber Kettle Grill.
I put together a series of step by step images with descriptions that shows exactly how to remove the ash pan in order to safely dispose of the ashes. BTW, if you buy the standard version of the Weber 22 1/2″ Kettle Grill, the ash pan is removed the same way. We welcome any type of questions from our readers when it comes to anything associated with grilling and barbecue. And please remember, there are no dumb questions!
