Charcoal Burn

I am in a small group, The South Yorkshire Green Woodworkers, this short video is of a weekend burn, trying the old way of earth burn instead of the tin burn.
The first views are of the build the centre pole is the guide a hole is bored through te top to lift it out when the build is finished. The rest of the video is of starting the fire and sealing off the oxygen.
The rest is a shortened video of the weekend, the dismantle and sorting of the charcoal. It was realised that the weekend was not a long enough length of time and not quiet enough soil placed on top. But the charcoal that was produced was very high grade and burnt extremly well.
