I read the recent posts about making your own charcoal - and I've decided to do it. I am planning on building a charcoal kiln with the 55 and 30 gallon drums from the The Whiz's website - and I'm still looking for a 30 gallon drum.
However, would it also work if I used my old pit to make charcoal. I have an old (never use anymore) pit with a firebox...if I fill the main chamber with chunks of oak, and get a roaring fire in the firebox would that make charcoal? Do y'all think that would work?
Thanks in advance.
