Where do I say "poke it with a wire ?

I said... "attach it to a coathanger"... wire ... so you can place it in the fire and pull it out.

You aren't going to use your fingers I hope ?

To unclog it you need to get it real hot and burn it out... one way is to attach a coathanger wire to it and set it into the coals of a hot campfire... pull it out every 5 minutes or so to make sure it is not melting it... turning orange is OK... melting is not."

###

You set the MUFFLER in the fire... not just the coathanger.

You let it sit in there for a good while.... (if you have a true campfire with hot coals in it... it will only take 15 minutes in the coals... and pull it out once or twice to make sure its not melting.. the coathanger is there for you to pull it in and out)

And doesn't my instructionsa say to... "bang the ash out AFTER it cools" ?.... (as in -- don't bang on a red-hot piece of sheet metal... it will bend and deform like taffy).

Good luck.
