HOW TO MAKE CHARCOAL (DOUBLE BARREL METHOD)
Checking to see if Spee.ch has your asset locally...
This video covers my trials of the double barrel method for the production of charcoal from random wood offcuts. The result of the first burn was quite poor, but the second try, lit from the bottom as well as the top and with more air holes round the bottom of the outer barrel was better.
The main problem with this double barrel method is that it is almost impossible to add more fuel if you need a longer burn time (eg if the wood inside the inner barrel is damp)
I have now discovered what I hope will be a more successful and foolproof method of charcoal making, which can cope better with damp wood.I'll add a video showing the new method soon. ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKbEUJIddGM
