This is awesome tek!
Thank both Hyph and coorsmikey for exhumation of this fine topic.
I now have better things to do w/ pizza boxes than burn them since recycling won't take them (I won't use obviously oil/food enriched parts). Every scrap saved from a landfill is a savings for me and the land.
Once I get some nice clean wood loving edibles I'd like to adapt this tek to make compressed log plugs as I have 20 acres of untouched (except for the one hunter that has permission and probably a few other who don't) woods that has oodles of large dead fall hardwoods I'd love to turn over and assault w/ a cordless drill, stuff w/ plugs, and then replace.
Do it early spring when out hunting morels.
I have 5 qt. of rye berries just waiting for the 'noc and think a couple would be a perfect donor subjects for a test run.
Thank you again for the thread and the resurrection!
