Living Off The Land –

Part 5 –

Making Charcoal –

The whole process to make a batch of charcoal takes Yoel eight to ten days. He must cut all the trees with an ax, haul them out of the forest with oxen and then chop them into smaller logs.

This solid pile of logs will burn slowly for three or four days.

The charcoal will then be bagged for sale or used in the family home.

Cooking with home-made charcoal.

These are not the briquettes one buys at a big chain store.
