  • COVER. Our stainless steel cover will last for many years. After 12 years we haven’t come close to burning one up.
  • ANGLE GRATES. If heavy logs aren’t dropped on the grates they should last for around 10 years.
  • HANDLES are only replaced when lost.

For longevity and durability, we use stainless steel self-tapping screws. As a result, the holes are smaller to help create a more secure fit resulting in a longer-lasting incinerator.

The base ring is the part of the incinerator that keeps it standing upright. It is a permanent fixture attached to the bottom of your incinerator during assembly. The base ring is located on the outside for stability, and because it’s on the outside, ashes fall straight down to the ground or on top of the ash catcher. The ash catcher is an optional item. It is placed on the ground underneath the incinerator to catch the ashes. This helps make ash removal much easier.

We use 2 grades of stainless steel in the construction of our Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators: 430 and 304. The gauge and thickness varies from 20 to 16 depending on the requirements of each part.

Our XL Burn Cage weighs in at 54 lbs

The largest model (2242) takes 45 minutes or less to assemble. You will need work gloves, preferably leather, pliers, a cordless drill with a clutch, and a 5/15″ hex drive.

A round design is the strongest and prevents our incinerators from bending or warping. The high temperatures reached by our incinerators would warp any other shape, especially square or flat. We’ve applied this knowledge to the design of our covers as well, which are domed rather than flat.

No, we use 100% stainless steel, which does not rust. What may appear to be rust on your barrel is actually oxidation. Oxidation occurs on stainless steel when temperatures reach 1000° F and is only on the surface which isn’t a problem. Our models are lasting for 20 plus years because the stainless steel we use will not burn out until temperatures reach 2550° F.

Our patented internal flanges allow air to freely move around the incinerator body completely engulfing its contents. The angle grates hold the burning material off of the ground which contributes to the high temperatures. Our patented design is circular, which is proven to be more effective than square designs.

We have customers whose mini-incinerators are working like new even after 12+ years.

Burn Barrel Uses

No plastic should ever be burned. We suggest you burn only dry material, yard waste, and non-recyclable paper products in your Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerator.

Yes, if you incinerate dry leaves and there is little to no wind.

The best is to remove ashes often. If you have 4 to 5 inches of ash build-up they should be removed. Ash removal is easy just tip your incinerator and roll it away from your ash pile. Shovel them up or dump them off your ash catcher. Always make sure ashes are cold.

Yes, just put your incinerator over tree stump fill with yard waste and burn it out. Angle grates can be removed for this procedure if needed so incinerator base ring lies flat on the ground. Always follow safety precautions. By driving copper nails into a new stump it will stop further growth. Also drilling holes like you would when you make maple syrup will dry the stump faster at the end.

If you use our Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators to remove a tree stump, do not let the stump burn to the ground level. It is important to be very careful as the roots of the tree could continue to burn for several days or weeks, which could potentially cause a forest fire. While burning, always follow our safety precautions.

We suggest you check with your local fire department or town hall for appropriate times to burn. Our products smoke less than a barbecue and many townships and ordinances allow the use of our products during regular burn bans.

Company Info

We started development towards the end of 1999. We were granted patents (#6932001 & #7,438,003) for our Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators design several years later.

No, we only sell our incinerators over the internet and through our authorized affiliates.
