May be an option, besides wasting the fuel.

That's where my wood scraps go and the - to be burned - stack is a lot larger than my completed stack of projects.

Maybe you are too much of a perfectionist, and reject decent projects

with " CHARACTER" as flaws.

I do too often myself.

Re: adding holes to a burn barrel - how to ?


Thought I would post an update . Weather here was good after Christmas so I loaded up the 357 magnum and fired 21 rounds into the can Gave me 42 decent sized vent holes and was fun so a win/win ! So now I have to cut the top off and cut a square in the bottom and weld in some screen/grate material and I can fire her up ........ pun intended

21 rounds of 357, Remind me to never make you angry, that much anger built up is not good for you.

Glad that you got it relieved before the new year, I hope that you are calmer now.

With both top and bottom removed and set on bricks the draft is so strong I've never found that to be a problem.

Seinfeld reference: serenity now serenity now I'm a pretty mellow roll with the punches kind of guy but I will admit shooting that barrel felt good ! I rotated the barrel to get somewhat of an even hole pattern . Even though I was using 38 special FMJ ammo I was quite impressed with the performance . So stay off my lawn !
