Camp out fires, BBQ's etc.

With the EPA now having a 300 plus page rule on wood stoves, which will cost $300 million or more per year and outlaw old stoves, I can see them outlawing wood fires when camping and outlaw wood for BBQ unless somehow contained.

Where did you see the information about outlawing old stoves?
I can only see this on the EPA web site:
"The rule does not affect existing woodstoves and other wood-burning heaters currently in use in people’s homes."
From: http://www2.epa.gov/residential-wood...d-heater-rules

Backyard recreational fires are already getting a lot of attention at the state and city level around the country. I wouldn't be surprised to see them banned in more places.
I've been in campgrounds with burning restrictions put on them by the city/county due to "smoke pollution".

Seems to me a campfire in the woods is one thing, and a trailer park with 500 trailers, each with a roaring campfire, could be another....

Where I camp we get fire restriction due to fire danger. The folks that use camp grounds may still be allowed to use designated fire pits but since we boondock, it's a Propane Fire or nothing.

It would be a sad day when all wood fires are outlawed....

The outside fires will be permitted only if you keep the opacity down under 5, co under 20ppm you have to spray in urea to keep the nox down but not too much because then you'll have to keep your eye on the noxnh3. Opps also don't forget about the co2 and so2. Must keep all records for each fire you have and if your out of compliance you will never be able to have a campfire again.

JOF will soon be selling a tool to measure all those campfire emissions so we may remain in compliance.

LOL. Don't forget to have all the analyzers calibrated before each fire per EPA guidelines.
