    You don't need of or through. "Out" already says it.

    It seems like too much for one sentence.

    His brother angrily threw the bag of his belongings out the front door and onto the pavement.

    17 words, 92 letters and spaces. 

    His angry brother hurled his bag of possessions out the door to the street.

    14 words, 74 letters and spaces.

    Do you get the same images and information? I am ambiguous about who owns the possessions, but we try to be more efficient.

    Neither is technically wrong, but what's preferred is neither. What's best is just, "...out the front door..."
