First I chopped the logs from wood suitable for grilling, in my case alder.
I stacked everything in the barrel closed and tightened the hoop around the lid.
He lined one side with bricks and drowned under the barrel for about 2 hours.
The result can be seen in the following photo. As you can see the charcoal was not finished yet.
I chopped some more wood for the second barrel, and filled that one.
I lined the barrels on both sides with bricks and flooded them.
I was heating properly, so even the lid on one barrel shot off.
This photo shows gases escaping from a barrel burning.
Then the coal was well burnt.
It was still a little lacking, so it burned for a while at first, but soon it was beautiful coals.
I dumped the two barrels into one barrel and stored it.
