Making Charcoal...

Recommended Posts

Most dont know that before coal was used in America,we burned WOOD and often we made charcoal/many black smiths used it also..

 

the advantage is ...one its lighter to carry,it make a better heat..you have already taken out the smoke I E gases that can be seen ...Its easyer to start a fire with..can be use to filter water..make Black powder...

 

So how do you do it ??

The best I have seen so far....

This MAY have been linked here before, if not idk why i didn't link it. i kinda got started on a home-blacksmithing kick a while back and came across that site. That is the best method i've found as well on making charcoal
