Chuck Norris mixes it with vanilla yogurt and uses it as a tooth polish. His gums bleed briefly, but it is otherwise very user friendly. Stoker Scott uses them in his Sky-Writing Flights with the A-dust powered "Magic Stoker Ride". Some refer to is as 'Scotty's Dream-Liner'.
Many folks sprinkle it on icy areas all winter, and benefit from reduced ambulance rides and falling problems.
Whatever you do with the ash, make absolutely sure it is not going to catch fire if disposed of inappropriately. :shock: :idea: :?

Yeah that was all Kimmels ash in that pic. That's how it always came out. I'm too lazy to pick through all of it. There's probably alot of good coal in there I bet too. :(

I have an outdoor firepit (nothing flammable nearby) that I dump it in then once a month or so I'll shovel it into used grocery bags and send it out with the rest of the garbage. I dump ashes in a pattern so I know which ash is cool and safe to bag even though it's usually damp from snow anyway.
