Making Charcoal with the Exeter Retort ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Alan and Jo Waters are expert charcoal makers with many years experience of this traditional skill from the land they coppice. Here they speak about the benefits of charcoal production using the Exeter Retort. They join with Geoff Self and Robin Rawle, designers and manufacturers of this Retort, to explain their experiences of the benefits of this method compared to traditional ring kilns - that the Retort produces more charcoal, that it has a shorter burn time, is cleaner, more efficient, easily accessible and transportable, and that it ultimately produces better quality charcoal - ideal for small woodland owners.

+Robert Meier He made a comment about a trade being renamed during the reign of Edward VI. I'm not even sure how historically accurate that is but it certainly doesn't have any relevance today!

Is it true or a myth that you can live full time on your woodland if you're making charcoal ?
