A New DIY Incinerator



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:

  1. Get a 55 gallon drum.   
  2. Cut five equally spaced 3 inch holes in the side wall of the barrel about six inches up from the bottom.   
  3. On the bottom cut a buch of 1.5 inch holes.  Sit the Barrel on top of some bricks.   
  4. Load it up.  Light it up.  

This thing would be a very awesome heater for outside events!
