I received this post today. The sender would appreciate input from those
more experienced than I. Please reply directly to her, since she is not
on the list.

I am a high school art teacher in Forsyth, Montana. I am looking for
some information on smoke firing, specifically in a 55 gallon oil drum.
I saw the procedure done several years ago, but didn't pay close
attention to how the drum was stacked, how long the material was allowed
to burn before reducing oxygen, and also, how tightly the lid fit the
"kiln". We are looking forward to hearing from you. Thank-you.
