I had read about adding burnt wood to your compost and now I have a better understanding of what it does. This is so interesting I want to know more, specifically how to make your own charcoal (easily and cheaply of course). Look forward to more readings. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks. I hope to get all my materials and write about making 2 different burners before Christmas. I can build a cheap burner now from 2 steel drums of different sizes. However, I also want to make a better burner to capture the gasses and use them as the primary fuel to burn/char... and that takes more dollars for materials. That will probably be my Christmas present to myself!
