Default Got my first batch of homemade charcoal going

I had to start the process last night because I had to get the wife to the airport this morning for business trip to NY city. Wanted to get started as soon as I got back this morning. Sorry if pictures ain't good all I have is an I phone. So hear we go, last night I split and filled the 30 gal barrel with pecan. And had that barrel sitting on a bucket raised off the ground.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1359471436.167476.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1359471456.968019.jpg


This was to make it easier getting it to sit flush with bottom of 55 gal barrel. Then it was a little tricky but i got the two flipped over.IImageUploadedByTapatalk1359471591.201212.jpg

Then this morning started filling around the the barrels with scraps from splitting and some bark and broken limbs, used leaves and pine needles to fill in voids.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1359471736.420985.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1359471760.637948.jpg

Got a small fire going on top and then put on the lid and stack and few blocks to help hold things down.
