Poke around through these pictures and you can see where we cooked in some of the Moso in November last year...we had a Veteran's Day get together at my bamboo grove. Cooked IN it, cooked WITH it (good quick fire source), used it for a Memorial display and just enjoyed being around it.
We had a dump trailer load of cane in the middle of our pile one time. We set it on fire one evening late. The cops showed up at our burn pile about an hour later wanting to know who was shooting automatics. I guess the neighbors about a half mile away called them. It wasn't long that they got to see some of it first hand. They kinda got a kick out of it after it was proven that we wasn't shooting.
I am uploading a short video of a bamboo burn I did at our boo pile about 5 years ago. The fire department showed up at my site...someone had called in a lot of noise and they could see smoke. I was surprised the cops the didn't show up...it does sound like a firefight. Big pieces can sound like a grenade. I have seen fire, coals, etc. blown 15-20 feet away from fire...it can get dangerous. I"ll post up the video in a bit.
Not a clue. I just ran it on my computer from YouTube and then also on my cell phone. The longer one and it works fine. I'll check it tomorrow afternoon maybe. Have to get up early and go test our new dive team sonar in the morning
