    When you use green wood it does take more time because you have to get all the moisture burnt off. I have not had any problems with long cooks and the temps hold steady. Put some in the drum and try it will work good.

    Thanks for the great pictorial. I've been reading on this myself trying to decide if it's worth trying to do a time or two.

    You mentioned having access to hardwood. It's been mentioned a time or two in what I've found, that when making your own lump this way, hardwood isn't required. One post (which I've been trying to find again--forgot to bookmark it) went so far as to say that any wood (even pine) would work, as the resin or whatever we don't normally want burns off in the process of turning it charcoal.

    Anybody have any experience with this idea?

    Think I answered my own question. Digging around the web, the only references I can now find to using pine is on blacksmithing & fireworks sites...

    My guess is that you burnt it a little more than you needed to in order to render it to charcoal. Charcoal is nothing more than partially burnt wood. there are many degrees of this possible.

    That's a possibility Tim, I want to try again with bigger chunks and more of them, The video says it takes 2-3 hrs for it to gas off i.e. white smoke. Mine only took one. Maybe a better fire/wood ratio would give me better results.
