Closed Container

If one heats wood in a closed container you get water coming off first, then wood gas, and ultimately your left with charcoal in the container. Wood gas is highly flammable vapor. For those that have the appropriate items, try this out:

The downside to all this is - once the wood is changed into charcoal you need to stop and open the pot and put more wood in - close it and go through the cycle again of heating it getting rid of the water vapor, etc. Also once you are out of wood - you will need to wait until something grows.
