We are heading to the UP over Memorial Day weekend to camp on our new land.
Does the burn ban that is in effect mean that I can't build a small cooking fire on our own property?
Don't want to violate any ordinances on our first visit as UP landowners!

thanks
Martha

No burn means no burn! Any burning.

Agreed..... but you can build a primitive outdoor cooking structure heated by wood. Then it officially becomes a cook station and legal. Just take precautions.
I remember a good thread on building some nice ones a few years ago at the other site

Jeeg........... are you sure about that? My brother is a forester for the DNR. They cite people all the time for burning in designated campfire rings at the camp grounds during bans. My gut tells me they will frown even more on a greenhorn building in a 'new' area that may not be properly cleared of brush and debris. Maybe the rules are different for burning on one's own property, but I don't think so.

ok, no campfire. Not a problem. I can use my coleman stove though, right?

I wasn't talking about a campfire ring, I was talking about building an outdoor grill/oven that is heated by wood. Perfectly legal because the fire is contained within. There are several of them in the U.P.

Yes, Weedlady... You are absolutely able to use your coleman stove

I should of been more clear in my first post. I was thinking of them building a permanent (contained) wood fired cooking structure to use in all their future trips and after they officially move up there

We plan on building one ourselves once we buy some property. Wherever that might be.....
