Thanks for this post, I've been wanting to make my own charcoal for a while now. I'll certainly do a little more research on the web as you suggest, but this method sounds simple and cool. Sometimes I'm a little dense so please excuse me for a couple questions:
Does this method have a name - what do I search on?
So you fill the inner drum, leave the top open, invert it with the "open" top sitting on the bottom of the larger 55 gallon drum and fill the space inbetween with the burn wood?
Do you light the burn wood on the top or bottom?
What size wood chunks did you use to make the charcoal?
Thanks again, this is uber neat, at least for me.
