Default Ashes

What do you do with your ashes from your cooks? Is it good for compost considering some goodness dripped in there? Garbage?

What kind of ash, briquettes, lump, or wood? Ash is a component of fertilizers. If lump or wood you can use it in compost. I wouldn't use briquette ash because of the additives.

From the Kingsford FAQ...

Quote:
Can you use this product as compost or fertilizer?
No. Both Kingsford® and Kingsford® Match Light® briquets contain ingredients other than charcoal to make them efficient cooking fuels. Charcoal briquets do not aid in the breakdown of organic matter.

Can't help you directly cause my ashes go into a vacuum cleaner and then into the trash.

But, here is a recent thread that might be helpful.
