whole oyster shell, now what?
    #3989599 - 03/30/05 11:58 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

i recently came across a fire pit with a bunch of oyster shells around it. i gathered a nice bagful. can i just smack them with a hammer? do they do something different to prepare them for store bought bags of crushed shells?

Now you do like the Incredible Hulk says:  "HULKK SMASHHH!!!!" :tongue2:

Break them up as small as you can, any way you can.  Put a load into an old sock and hit with a hammer, etc.  The smaller you can get it the better.  Powder is best because it diffuses into the casing mix just right.

i was thinking of rubbing them between 2 rocks, kind of like a mortar and pestle. after i smashed them up of course. i was just making sure they don't burn them before they bag them. i haven't ever seen crushed shell myself, so i didn't know what it should look like when finished.

Nope, no special processes, it's exactly what the name says.

Crushed shell isnt going to do you much. You need powderized oyster shell if you want it to have a chance to break down and really serve its purpose.
