The tar kiln is used to get coal from wood blocks or boards. It also produces Tar as a byproduct, which you can take out in a bucket or barrel.
How to Use
Fill it with blocks or boards, then light the tar kiln using a torch or other fire source. The tar kiln can hold 80 blocks or 40 boards, and it takes 83.3 RL Hours (1.2% per hour) to burn no matter how much wood is in it. Each block becomes 2 coal, one board equals 1,5 coal.

Tar Kiln Q =
Tar and Coal Q = (note: n.n5 output values are randomly rounded up or down to n.n)
- Due to saw quality’s ability to increase the quality if boards sawed, boards are usually higher quality than blocks. It is recommended to use them for making high Q coal.
- Blocks are lower quality than boards, but they produce more tar and coal.
- When adding blocks/boards to the tar kiln, the quality of the blocks/boards will average after each addition. If you want to make high Q coal, avoid putting in any lower Q blocks or boards.
- As of World 10, it now takes about ~3.5(83.3 hours) days real-time to finish burning coal.
- As of World 10, the kiln must be at least half full to start.
- Different types of wood yield different amounts of tar. Pine blocks yield the most tar, followed by other coniferous trees.
- Tar kiln can keep a maximum amount of 10 liters of tar.
- A full kiln of pine blocks yield nearly 20 liters of tar, so if you don't collect it halfway you'll lose half of the yield because the kiln is full.
- It takes approx. 2 minutes and 45 seconds to produce 0,01l of tar from pine wood.
- As of World 11, higher Q tar kilns finish faster than lower Q kilns. (Debunked - currently my q206 kiln finished at the same rate as a q22 kiln)
- A wheelbarrow can be used to get all the coal from a Tar Kiln, no matter how many coal the kiln contains. (ie: not limited to coal stockpile limit) ...
