Just wanted to share a few photos with you all, I have made some progress with the biochar retort kiln. I have not mortared anything together yet, but I did stack the bricks in the formation they will eventually be mortared. I did start a fire in it, and it burned horizontally just like it was supposed to, pretty amazing to see. This will be a two barrel design just like shown in the photo, but instead of just a burn barrel on the bottom, the rocket stove will be incorporated.

Are you going to redirect the gasses from pyrolysis back into the rocket?
 
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
