Charcoal Stove/Burner

Postby zelph » Thu Jun 16, 2016 6:58 pm

Last year in October, Mississippi was under a "Burn Ban" condition so no wood fires were allowed. Charcoal was allowed in fire rings and grills. I gave some thought to burning charcoal. Came up with and idea. Used a #10 can with no bottom. Set the can on a grill grate inside of a fire ring at a campground. Stacked the charcoal in a circular patern inside the can leaving a hole up the center of the stack. I place a small stainless steel pet food can under the grate centered under the can filled with charcoal and lit it. Within a short time the stack of charcoal was ablaze and burning nice and clean. Lots of flame to satisfy my need for a make believe campfire :DBfire:

It's not showing the pic or video but it sounds good. Kinda like a charcoal starter?

That flame is shooting up there like a geyser. One question though; what pet food company uses stainless steel cans?

Oops, made a mistake. Was suppose to say pet food bowl. They are about 3.5" in diameter and withstand the heat. I use the same bowl for starting campfires. Large bottles of rubbing alcohol at the dollar store cost $2.00, much cheaper and cleaner burning than charcoal lighter 8-) Place the bowl under the tinder twigs and stack logs teepee style over tinder twigs. I put 3 large logs around the inside of the fire ring and then place tinder twigs teepee style against center log and then logs teepee style over tinder twigs. I make sure I can still have access to the little bowl of alcohol so I can drop match into bowl. Makes for a nice clean and hot way to start a campfire.

Dollar General Stores are everywhere. Soon there will be more of them than K-marts :o
