A friend of mine gave me a new fire barrel. He used a torch to cut holes in the bottom for better airflow. The airflow on this thing is just right!! Since I have had this barrel I have learned that just about everything burns. The heat and flames from this thing are astounding! Everything I have put in this thing has been reduced to ashes. I use it to dispose of paper waste.
If only we could figure out a way to harness this energy...
How to build:
- Get a 55 gallon drum.
- Cut five equally spaced 3 inch holes in the side wall of the barrel about six inches up from the bottom.
- On the bottom cut a buch of 1.5 inch holes. Sit the Barrel on top of some bricks.
- Load it up. Light it up.
This thing would be a very awesome heater for outside events!
