    I'm getting a buildup of creosote on my ash door. It's on the sides of the ash bin too, but it's heavyest on the door. My guess is because it's cooler down there and there is an air intake that is used to start the fire up. This probably cools it down further. The creosote is staying off or burning off the upper door and firebox. Is there anything I can do for the creosote on the ash door?

    Should I grab a putty knife and go at it? Is there an easier way?

    I have a lot of creosote on mine too. I put some tinfoil under it and scraped it. Could use a wire brush too.
