I've heard of people doing this in corn producing areas back in 1930s due to very depressed prices on commodities. Always wondered how well it would work. Here is article I found of guy in MN who raises ear corn just to burn in his outside wood furnace. http://www.farmshow.com/issues/30/02/300204.asp Unfortunately not lot of details. I wonder how well this would work in a modern air tight wood stove as opposed to an outside wood boiler unit like this fellow uses? Anybody here ever experimented burning ear corn?
