9 Easy Steps To Make Your Own Charcoal
If you live in an area with a lot of trees, then you’re in luck. If the SHTF, you’ll have plenty of wood to burn for heat and cooking, but not everything should be cooked over a wood fire. Most foods such as meat and many vegetables are best cooked over charcoal.
Fortunately, there’s a simple way to take some of that wood and turn it into charcoal. You just need a few basic tools and some patience. This is definitely a skill worth learning since store-bought charcoal might not always be available.
