Give it a shot..Pass along what you come up with..
If you and know one else will say it, here it is.... "It won't work...period".
I have been raised on and currently heating with wood for 35 years. To many nastys to off gas from wood. Charcoal is carbon after the nasties are burned off and burns clean.
