    Also known as a Billy Bar. Very handy but I think the brake tool would be a bit cheaper.

    Along the same lines, I use an ice scoop:



    It does double duty since I store my charcoal in a big dog food container (holds three bags of KBB).

    I also use a child's garden hoe, on longer cooks, to move the hot coals around before adding new charcoal.

    I know your talking unconventional tools but the wok ladle and wok brush should be used for a wok in the traditional sense. Cooking with a wok on the kettle is fantastic. I use a vortex basket with a wok ring on the grate above and can get some fantastic heat going for wok dishes. Besides no oily smoke in the kitchen, just outdoor living.
