Barrel firing May 2011

Spring brings green grass, leaves, weeds and in my case..... smokey pots!  I fired my first barrel of the season this weekend.  After the initial firing, I was not happy with the outcome. Too much oxidation turned the pots mostly white again in spite of some impressive smoke.  So while the barrel was still quite hot, I loaded on the barn straw and dry leaves and more sawdust and got a better result.
