The thread on corn kernel burning stoves got me to thinking... I read in an old-timey type book of a woman who used spent corn cobs as fuel in her kitchen stove. I don't recall reading if she just used a regular wood stove, or if there is a special kind of stove for burnig cobs. At the farm, the folx have a couple of old silos loaded with corn cobs that have been picked clean by local varmints. We were thinking it would be a good idea to utilize the cobs some way, and got to talking about the book I read (and now cannot locate). Does anyone here have any thoughts or experience with this? Thanks Pony!
