It's not much harder to make a big pile of charcoal out of a burn pile instead of just burning it to ashes. The short version is that you light it from the top and then put it out with a hose. There is a little management involved and I do like to stack it neatly myself, but you can cut all kinds of corners and still end up with a lot of charcoal. The charcoal lasts forever, and works amazingly well in my garden, so it's a pretty good deal!
