Burned a hole thru the wood about 4 feet square. I had another barrel in the same place same set up, and burned branches leaves and wood in it for four years with out a incident.
This barrel had Soybean Adhesive in it prior to me using it. In the bottom was about a 2 inch layer of goop 10 times thicker than molasses. I think that crap finally ignited and caused the intense heat surge.
I burned some boxes and a few small branches in it today but that was 6 hours ago.
Oh well shït happens.
