All of the above? I just got into making it on a small scale again. I'd quite because the system we were using wasn't working all that well and my supply of free sawdust dried up. I'm still not sure where I'll get materials long term, but in the short term I've got them and permies helped me find a short-term system to make it in small quantities while using the heat to help warm the house.

Mixing it with fermented grains could help spread it to all the other places, and inoculate it at the same time, plus it will encourage me to up my fermented feed game.
Consider yourself very lucky John! I can't even get the tree-trimming trucks to dump it any more - too many people on their list!

I would check on Craig's list. People in our area are always trying to give away wood. Trees grow too fast here!
If you did the system where you put a smaller container full of wood (with some holes drilled in it to release the pressure) inside the B-B-Q with wood around the container, I would think it would work. People often use 5 gallon metal paint cans as the small container, but there are also some small metal drums that are small enough to go inside a 55 gallon drum. It would be an interesting experiment. Hopefully some more experienced biochar permies will have experimented with something like this. I don't know if the BBQ could be used as is with no second inside container.

Eliminate 95% of the weeds in your lawn by mowing 3 inches or higher. Then plant tiny ads:
