Patrick's is prolly for cooking and I have no idea for Paul's.
I'm wondering if I lay a plate of steel down and place my upside down bucket of wood on top, if I could have a normal bonfire and collect the charcoal the next day or so. It's hard for me to justify a good fire in a barrel. It's just not as fun hanging out with family and friends that way. Anyone know if it would work with out using the second barrel.
On another note, I remember making char cloth as a kid. You cut up an old cotton t-shirt and put it in a coffee can over the fire. It would cook the chemicals out and you were left with a black and brittle cloth that would coal up with a spark. Survival weekends in scouts taught me a good bit.
