    Whats the going rate for native charcoal?

    I use to sell sweet chestnut charcoal for £12 a 2-2.5 kg bag to customers, I offered their money back if they didn't like it. I would explain to them that all it took was a piece of paper to light it, how it lasts longer that other charcoal how 95% of charcoal is imported. 99% of them came back and brought double, one came back with empty bag and asked for refund. I use to do market stalls, different shows. I enjoyed doing it but moved onto other things, don't like retailers adding 100% and paying shite for all your hard work

    Charcoal quality

    I think you'll get a better calorific value in a retort as a more even burn, so your charcoal would produce less smoke and burn better than a ring. Yes that price is what iwould get, we also sold to some old school blacksmiths to as it would burn hotter that the crappy imported stuff. Miss doing it, but moved on to other things. Do you find different wood produce better charcoal.

    I don't think there much difference between the 2 kilns apart from the way they burn, you might get a slightly better value charcoal from a retort due to the no air getting in and less smoke of course. I use to use a ring kiln and sell it for £7.50 a 2kg bag, but haven't done it for years now.

    It's a shame if that happens Steve, what a useful resource for people. Can it be used for a wider audience like landscaping kit or drills etc too.
