If by a charcoaler you mean a machine that can take wood and make charcoal.... then there is nothing useless about a charcoaler. Read up about Biochar and what it can do for you ... http://edenparadigm.com/biochar ... and also all about the best soil in the world.... Terra Preta .... http://edenparadigm.com/terra-preta

I wish I could access one of your charcoalers!

Chelle, I think marty is talking about bar BQ Grills. Seems like there are always a lot of old grills around that folks are giving away or taking to the dump.
 
Nothing? Or something? Like this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
