    BBQ burn barrel

    Here is a burn barrel I made for wood coals to cook with. I saw where match lit charcoal was the fastest way to start the 🔥 so I made a screen to hold the charcoal and it works great. Attachment 1691348Name:  IMG_20180716_184715036.jpg

    Lets see the grill...

    I'm confused though,
    Are you trying to make charcoal or just creating red coals to cook with ?

    Making coals to cook with. In the past I had a barrel with angle iron as a screen & I would use cardboard and lighter fluid to start the fire and that took forever. The charcoal helps get the fire going a lot quicker

    I see.

    I use charcoal to start my smoker also..

    but I use one of these starter chimneys and then start stacking wood on top.

    works great.... very easy.
