New Firewood Regulations...New York

Guys attending or hosting BBQ events in the state of New York should pay attention to this. Hopefully, event coordinators will be able to recommend local firewood sources or have some available for sale at comps.

Don't try to circumvent this. They are watching and will conduct spot checks at comps.

This is all a big conspiracy to get people to buy pellet cookers.

LOL they are just little logs.

I wonder if this also restricts the importing of smokinlicious products as well?

Pretty sure their stuff is kiln dried. I'd check because this is a real issue.

Wait until they apply the cap-n-trade carbon tax to firewood. You think it isn't coming?

Pellets are exempt. You need to have some sort of "Source Certificate" or something. A piece of paper stating where you bought the bought and that you understand it cannot be transported more than 50 miles from that source. Go to the link above and print out the certificate. I'd get receipts from whoever you bought wood from. If they don't give you one...don't buy it.

The beauty of the global warming "cash grab" is, we'll all be dead before we know if this was true or not. They can say, "well, we need to stop eating beef right now, because we have determined that ,in the future, cows will evolve into a higher life form than man," and we would never know if they were right........or not!!! I guess that, the government is just there to look out for us, and, in the end they are right just about all of the time so, I am perfectly happy to sacrifice my lifestyle, and that of my children, and grandchildren , so that we can possibly protect my great,great,great,great,great,great,great,great,gr eat,great,great,great,great,great,great,great grandchildren or, just to fund a bunch of money burning socialist programs.......

I can save you the suspense right now. Its not true. Just an excuse to start an environmental tax on climate change. Change you can believe in. And the ash borer only infects ash.

Anyone here cook with Ash?

My county is clean by the way!

Back to pellet cooking for me. Not worth the hassle!

Good thing you bought that offset.

I've made arrangements for mostly all the comps I'm doing this year.

Based on the map I just reviewed, I'd say Summit County ain't gonna be clean for long!!! You are totally surrounded!! Get out while you still can!!!!!

I'll be smoking in my driveway it looks like!

Back to the drawing board!

I need a new trailer for the pellet cookers at least until they outlaw sawdust!
