    One of mine, for all us poor buggers who get stuck in the city.

    So, because i live in the city, i have an annoyingly difficult time making supplies like charcloth. So, here's how i make charcloth using a barbecue. I dunno if this has been done before on the forum, if it has, i appologise. If not, i hope you enjoy!

    So kai, is there a part 2 to this?
    You did not finish the process of making char cloth, do you seal the bag, what's the cooling times, etc?
    I was really in to your tutorial, before you wandered a bit, otherwise, good on you for adapting to your living conditions whilst still pursuing your passsion for Bushcraft!

    Could have sworn i mentioned to seal the bag except for a small hole, and also to let it cool before opening... Ahh well, will do it over again properly. Thanks for pointing out the flaws.

    Did you know ... another way of making char cloth is to set fire to some cloth and quickly put it in a sealed jar.
