    I’m curious what kind of vacuum your use to clean your stove? I have not made the purchase yet and wanted to get some input on what to buy.

    So you then wait until your stove is complete cooled off before cleaning it? I have seen ash vacuums but then seem kind of pricey....

    Exactly. That is the one trade-off. Spend $200+ and suck out the hot ashes or wait until they are cooled to use the shop vac. I wait ~ 30 minutes and have never had a problem. The fly ash is nearly burnt anyway. It is the stuff in the burn pot that you have to watch out for.
