What about clothing? I've got at least 8 bags of kids clothing that we had to keep, ya know, just in case.
What I have learnt from burning cloths. Yup, it burns fine. If the item has metal buttons/zipper.... I set them aside for the colder days when I'm burning hotter. So far, can never see any metal pieces.

And yes, I do dump ashes on driveway (gravel).

Do you throw them on the coal bed? Seems like it would slow down air passing through the coal.

Yup, right on top of the coal.
