20140710-211354-76434586.jpgLast time we had just started lighting our charcoal burn using the kindling. Once it starts going you have to wait patiently for the burn to become smokeless, it does smoke a lot to begin with. When you are left with a clear flame, let it burn for a while before stopping the oxygen flow into the bottom of the oil drum by surrounding it with dirt. Then carefully place the lid on top of the oil drum before covering that with dirt too, the aim here is to starve the flame of oxygen. It will continue burning and that is what causes the charcoal to form. Now leave it until it has finished burning, if you take the lid off before the burn has finished you can risk re-igniting the flame. Once its cooled you can take a look inside and see what you’ve made…
