    Whatever you can get at a reasonable price. I get a variety of maple,
    poplar, and pine. Pine is the worst, but it's free.

  5. Try some. I rather doubt it. I have a corn boil every year, and some years
    the fire pit still has cobs in it left over from the previous year, despite
    many intermediate fires. They need to get up to a very high temperature to
    burn whole - I expect they burn much better if diced up to the size of the
    pellets used in pellet stoves.

    Old pallets are often free, easy to chop with ax, and good source of nails
    afterwards is by-product.
