I am not a fan of big brother regulations, but on this one, I give them a pass.

When a high pressure system sits over the Bay area and inversion occurs, the urban pollution dome that is trapped is dramatic. Any and all temporary strategies to mitigate the very real respiratory dangers is a small price to pay to help those who are susceptible.

Be a man.

I'm not a man and whenever I see one of these stupid spare the air days, I go straight to the fireplace. Get rid of all these old beater cars spewing crap into the air, and leave me and my duraflame alone.

i am also burning right now, a good hot fire with dense wood burns very clean, not smokey. these officials can't tell people to just burn clean hot fires, so it's easier to just tell everyone not to burn.

I've got a 17 lbs Brisket, two 10 lbs Pork Shoulders, and 4 Racks in the Smoker right now. Started the fire about 2 this morning, the hunks went in about 4 and are about ready to come out. The ribs went in at noon and will come out soon after the other..........

It would be worth their communist fine... Cooking for a buddy's son just home from the desert.

I spit on the Air District
