I have made a rig for making charcoal, made a few batches, and love it. I do have to get a new barrel, the one i have now i made out of a couple 6.5 gal pails welded together, but the metal is thin and warping already. Chuck how do you secure your lid? I put some latches on my first attempt but am thinking trying something different. I will attach some pics of my rig tonight when i get home from work.
This has become my new time filler. Works out great for me, because my brother works for a mill work dept and brings loads of wood for coal, and the burning fuel, in exchange for some of the finished product. Still charring the oak hand rail he sent my way!
