im my camp at my piece of land, i have a little desk BBQ i use for cooking, when i have to lit it on, i save the unburned charcoal and ashes using a mesh colander


it separates unburned charcoal from the ashes... i shake it over a plastic bag for ash collecting


and in the colander remains the unburned charcoal.


i reuse this unburned charcoal wich sometimes is nearly the half the little BBQ needs...


then i only need to ad some dry straw as tinder and some more charcoal, and here we go again...


ashes has many uses i use them for washing kitchen stuff (cups, spoon, dish, frypan and hands) it's good removing gease even with cold water
