Just saw a notice up at the Ocean Shores post office. Seems whoever is in control of fire restrictions has made it illegal to use charcoal in your BBQ at your own home. I thought it was just poorly written but upon checking with the local fire department and the Greys harbor fire captains department (whatever their official name is) I was told I couldn't use birquets in my BBQ on the deck off our second story home.

Who the hell thinks up stuff like this and what data do they use to justify these restrictions? Has there been a rash of land fires started because someone used their weber grill? I know why don't they make lightning strikes illegal .

James is this a temporary thing or permanent? I know I was just in WP city hall and they informed me the fire pits in the back yard are banned due to a state wide burn ban on right now. Once it is lifted we can do as we please.

Having to run to central WA 2.5 weeks back to clear stuff out of a building due to the fires I get how dry it is. But the coast is a little different but still on the dryer side than normal.

    Correct. It's strictly due to the poor air quality. BBQ's believe it or not release a lot of contaminant's that does contribute to the dirty air. It usually has nothing to do with the fire risk.
