Have you ever burnt tar ?? How would you control the burn ?? How could you face your neighbors afterwards ??...assuming you lived thru it & still had your house in good condition.
Those grit pebbles won't burn & neither will the fiberglass hairs burn very well.
The tar will melt down into your grate holes..... :what: yep, you will have 1 awful mess to cleanup :o if you survive :o

I have about 6 bundles at the house and I'm only a half hour away.

Let us know if you decide to try it and I'll run some more up for you. Then again....... I should be able to see the smoke and flames from here ! :o

Ive burned lots of things but not shingles. I would not try it in a stoker. Im not sure I'd try it in a handfed either. Tires would be an improvement but I wouldnt burn them in a stoker either.

You guys obviously dont know the BTU content of asphalt shingles.

I happen to know they range between 5,000 and 7,000 btu depending on the manufacturer.

That is if you lab test them in an oxygen bomb calorimeter.
