Good question. We have a backyard BBQ pit that we use occaisionally.
With all of the fires and the drought happening, there probably are laws regarding these.
Does anyone know the statutes on BBQ pits ?

Start by asking at your local fire station ...

Good luck with that suggestion. Have you tried calling a fire station and getting an answer ?

The guy who picked up the phone said he would check on the legal information and get back to me !

That's sad. We walked into our local fire station and asked them about where it was safe and allowed to set off model rockets. They were more than happy to give us what information they had. (Basically, nowhere in San Diego County ... although we've seen some folks doing it at Fiesta Island, perhaps by special permit. Otherwise, go out into the desert.)

I hope you only got someone who was having a bad moment ...

Its kind of disturbing that the guy who answered the phone did not know that answer. You would think they would be trained not only in fire fighting, but in the legal statutes knowledge as well.

Exactly. That and/or contact your city's code enforcement department. They should know for sure.

I understand firepits are illegal all over the state, but barbeque pits are legal??
It's what the fire marshal told my folks when they inquired.
