    Ah, no. Don't think you would want to. there are other ways to make it without using the egg, it is no the ideal kiln.

  • You need to heat the wood chucks in the absence of air to make it right.  Making charcoal is really not worth the effort or the cost unless you are making a train load.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
