I chose to make some charcoal first. Sorry it wasn’t made clear. Kind of a “don’t get the cart before the horse” thought process.
Both pipes at the bottom are welded. (Although this morning i saw a pin hole)
I definitely could use this as a simple fire, but woud rather have something in the 20 gallon range so that it is easier to clean, change the nozzle and mount on my JD 140 if I want. I don’t have a generator yet but if I get one then I may use a 55 gallon drum for something like that.
