Developing the Biochar Works Unit, Heating the NE

Hugh and Jerry did a super job of introducing biochar at Heating the NE but obviously next year this session needs to be expanded to a more complete exploration of the potentials.

I'm lucky to have Hugh so nearby to assist me and now that I've found an avenue of biochar use (inoculation). I am in need of some techniques that create as much as possible as easily as possible. Probably the next thing Hugh and I'll be trying is a variation on John Roger's 55 gal. TLUD. My "3 barrel top lit up draft rocket retort" is dead at the moment as I've burned up all my little retort barrels and I want something that makes more than 5 gallons of char/hr.
