How to Clean the Chimney Spider Filter

In a previous article, I talked about how the old screen filter was so difficult to clean especially when the soot buildup had started to harden and clog the screen holes. In the same article, I described how a better filter can be made with simple common materials using household tools.

The new spider filter however is not immuned against the problems of soot buildup. But this time, cleaning is so much more convenient. Why? Well, here’s how easy:

  1. Take out the dirty spider filter from the chimney extension.

Where to Get a No-Cost Grill Grate

The old grill grate we have is old and rusty.

Not only does it look bad, it can become unhygienic as well as dangerous to use and clean. I mean, look at those rusted, worn out thin rods. They look like deadly spikes! It’s certainly time to replace it but we don’t want to buy a new grill grate when an improvised grate would work as well.

A devise that’s made of metal, flat, and has a grid of bars that are adequately spaced is really all you need. Remember, this is something that you’ll put on the fire so it need not be fancy but certainly has to be sturdy.

Creating a Better Chimney Extension Filter

In a previous entry, I talked about in detail a possible design flaw with the chimney extension. Because of that, I devised a really cheap (no-cost if you’re resourceful enough), yet effective solution to prevent debris from falling into the chimney extension. This is debris that eventually will cause the quick build-up of soot inside the chimney which blocks the exit of smoke.

The filter we made in that entry was very effective but only to a certain extent. After a while, soot will buildup on the filter itself, depositing into the diamond shaped holes or gaps in the screen.
