Cobs for heat
- Oh now I get it. Duh. Can I burn the corn cobs in a regular wood stove? I live near a cannery that processes a lot of corn, and it struck me it might be easier to drive over there and load up some cobs and dry them at home than to cruise around looking for fallen wood. And what about cast-off treated lumber, sure you don't barbecue over it, but is it more harmful to burn it in the heating stove than to let it go to the dump?

our wastefulness when we will BURN FOOD to keep warm.

*not* want in your air.
And Greg--burning corn *cobs* is not wasteful of food, unless you're
