I failed to mention the first time I burned it out I just dumped gas and "Booooom!".

It was pretty great.

I knew it was going to happen. I did it on purpose.

Yeah, right says Austin with smoking eyebrows and singed wrist hair. Did you at least first say "Hey, hold my beer and watch this"?

I didn't have a beer.

The way I set it up and the amount of gas I use to get it started make it sound like a shotgun blast. I can feel the force from it. It's pretty great.

Just an update.

I have it working. I set to rows of holes, one towards the bottom, the other towards the middle and it burns everything to pure ash. Very little coal.

I get a big boom after lighting it, and I am enjoying that, but I know I will lose my eyebrows before to long.

Wish I could burn things here. I would be arrested if I had a burn can.

Your state sounds screwy. It's encouraged here. All neighbors have burn cans. I'm using the ash to fertilize the yard. We'll see how well it works.

Have the cats been a problem since you started scattering the ash or were they there before you started this?
