    Yes, I just mean that most people refer to a gas or propane grill as "a BBQ". There's nothing like cooking over wood.

    Yes, that surely would, but I didn't take this way because my very few attempts at inox welding weren't a great success. I didn't want to jeopardize this critical gear, so I stayed with what I can do reasonably well. Or actually not too badly, from a pro welder's point of view.

    Curious in what way you think the tripod is superior to a BBQ? I use a Weber smokey mountain. 18.5". Last weekend I cooked/smoked a ham and a turkey at the same time. If you mean the tripod cooking is superior to a gas grill, well I would concur.

    What you can't say before hand is the effects of shocking and vibrating the pole. A small jerk on one point can easily be amplified by the length of the pole and the wires. Moreover, if the motion comes close to the resonance frequency of a component, it could become devastating, even if all the system is sound and well assembled. Remember what pounding wedge can do on a dead tree, or even the chainsaw vibrating the trunk.

    I'm hoping Marine Le Pen wins. Not because it would be good for France, which it most likely wouldn't, but for her plans to do a "Frexit" election. That just might be what it takes to completely wreck the EU.

    Yeah, cooking is the only thing that I use it for. I have this amazing tripod that I have been using for years for cooking outside, so much better than a BBQ. I had been just making a big fire, waiting for it to burn down, and then moving coals over for cooking. But this process takes a long time. So I researched making charcoal and this is what I settled on. With charcoal, I can have good hot coals ready for cooking in about 20 minutes, I love it. As far as methods, there are lots of different ones out there. I watched a lot of Youtube videos to figure out how to get it done. This method made the most sense to me so that's why I tried it. I had to play around with burn times to get the "minimum effective dose" that would produce charcoal without over-burning it. Sugar Maple definitely produces the best quality. Rich, I like the idea of laying down a plate of steel and having a bonfire around it. It would take a good fire, the big barrel definitely holds the heat in around the small barrel. It's worth a shot. I don't have a good thick steel plate or I might try it myself. You would really have to tend the fire and keep it stacked up around the barrel. Paul, that sounds like an interesting idea. I thought the environmentalists frowned upon burning wood for the same reason they want me to believe that cow farts are a source of pollution? What would you use the biochar for?

    I haven't seen coke for years, we used to use it once, burns hot. Didn't think we could get it now but it's possible, not cheap. $40 for 30kg/66lbs or $1.00 a Kg bulk. https://www.farmweld.com.au/blog/coke-the-fuel-for-forge-fire/

    Yep, I don't think I'd do it. They can slap together down the line quite a bit, doesn't take that much at the pole. Don't ask me how I know.:/:

    What Al said, even if everything goes good and you get reported and they show up it isn't going to be pretty.

    The stick and rope climbing technique that Jay posted is called Burinawa. I've played with it and it works very good. No special sticks are needed as the rope squeezes the tree when weighted.
