    Instead of using the burn barrel for a heat sourse with a smaller barrer inside. Has anyone ever heard of using a propane burner for the heat sourse? That way you would only need one smaller barrel for the lump.

    From my experience with making charcoal, containing your heat source around the barrel that holds the wood is important.

    Look on some of the Pyro sites like Go to the news archives. Yes many people make charcoal in a "paint can" retort over a Cajun Cooker propane burner.

    Thanks for the reply. That is what I was hoping for.
