Bob, yes, the grate sits on a rail left and right, moveable back and forward.
Don, l hope to hit the sweetspot in charcoal/water ratio, maybee even fine tune it with a bit of EGR, so that no slag is produced. On my last build l didnt had actual slag (fully melted “glass”) but more like sort, cookie like crambly lumps. I hope these lumps travel down with the char and gets crushes with the grate. The idea is on every hoper or so, the volume of char in the fire tube is replaced/sliped.
Is this the cleanout auger you have on your Tracker?
Garry, no, l just drilled 9mm holes in 4 cm sections of a 1" staines steel rod. It took a good quality drill and quite some time…
Any tips on using cheramic wool?
