    I've spent a lot of time in the third world (Haiti). The smell of charcoal-making is really something one comes to associate.

  • These are mud huts that they load with wood, set on fire and then seal off except for a very small opening and burn down to charcoal......this is used for their everyday cooking

    That's awesome brother. Not something you see everyday for sure. Cool little cooker too.

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Makes me appreciate being able to have Rockwood delivered to my door. Very interesting to see it done at the most basic level.

    Always interesting to see how others live. How many years have you spent in Thailand?

    Btw, you can buy those cookers here. $30 plus shipping. http://www.templeofthai.com/cookware/thai-bbq-stove-6200000562.php

  • We traveled there for 10 years, spending two months in Thailand then back to USA for two months then back to Thailand for two months We were spending six months of the year in Thailand traveling this way. We learned a lot more about Thailand than someone going there for a two to four week vacation. The people are great, food is delicious, safe country (we could walk around and not feel threatened) and prices are cheap

    In South America it's usually the other way around.......they stack all the wood up into a pile, then build the kiln around it.  Then after the cooking and the cooling, they just knock it down and collect the charcoal.
