Holy crap I just had a fire on my deck ! I got a new burn barrel today and set it atop a metal ring to keep it from direct contact with the wood. My wife comes running in the room saying the deck is on fire lol.

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.

Damn. chuckle.gif

Oh well shït happens.

This was on a 5 inch high burn pit ring 1 inch higher than a brick. Same ring I had under the previous barrel for the last four years in the same spot. One like this made specifically for that purpose
