Doak, right off the bolt at the fabric store. Now that sounds the best. Our Fabric Land quite often has incredible sales there, I never even entertained that thought. So, off to the Fabric store I will go, one fine day. Have a wonderful and greatest of days.
I bought burlap from the hardware store, food grade, but it burned up way too fast, I was shocked. Then I went some distance away to the Honeybee Centre in Surrey. This is where I have taken quite a few courses. The owner orders in burlap sacks that have been treated with coconut oil. It burns that cool, blue smoke (hee, hee, JP, have fun with this one) and burns for a long time. There is no toxicity to the bees, otherwise he would not even think of selling it to beekeepers. Yes, I would say the smoke is blueish, some may refer to it as grey, but then, doesn't grey border blue? It is excellent fuel and goes for a long time.
I am heading off to the birch tree that has been laying on the ground now for a couple of years since our land clearing. It is covered in what I think are called timber polypores. I will take some pictures to show. I am going to dry these and implement these with burlap for my smoker. Eeeks, here I go again, I think I got carried away in this thread, my apology. Have a wonderful greatest of days. Cindi
