    Thanks, I am gonna give it a shot.
  4. Well that hurts.
    Last year I got two bushels of FREE corn from a friend.
    But I stripped the corn for the freezer and tossed the cobs.

    I did make some corn cob soup from some of them.
    Just didn't think about burning them.

    I can only imagine it's a sweeter kind of smoke.
    Is that true?

    This method of smoking has been around for some time in my area in the south. Old timers here used cobs for smoking the sausage links.

    here is another link to follow.

    Traditionally, many farm families smoked their meats and sausage with dried corn cobs. Cob smoked meat is very nice because the smoke is pungent but not heavy tasting.

     if you Google corn cob smoked meats you will find a multitude of information on corn cob smoked meats.
