Has anyone tried making charcoal from leaves? I was thinking about it while working under my gargantuan silver maple on--you guessed it--clearing the gutters and deck. Initially it seemed far-fetched. The more I think about it, the more it seems plausible. You take a steel 55 gallon drum, pack it firmly with leaves, drill a couple holes for the gases to escape, and cook it over a fire. I imagine you'd be left with something similar to fines. I see moisture and low density/return rates being a problem. Likely very inefficient. Thoughts?
Man oh man! I'm in need of some coal and can not find any. I'm in Florida so it's hard for me to get some besides eBay and they're proud of their coal! I keep reading that people are buying their coal for $50/ton! It's crazy and I would love to be able to buy from someone that can ship. If anyone knows where I can buy some please let me know!
