His neighbor even asked him one time where his BBQ was! It really burns hot though and keeps his garage warm. An old guy that used to trap told him that was how he got rid of the fat back in the 30's and I guess it works. I'll stick with coal...


listen to them old guys, they didnt get old by being stupid...cant fix stupid!!!

I think if the boss lady of the house caught me burning something other than coal or wood in the stove, she'd personally throw me in the stove!

Do you prefer then lightly roasted, or well done?

Famous Reverend and Dr. of Geology William Buckland preferred them toasted. See the section on eccentricities.
