Hello all. I am new to SMF.com and have a general question. I have heard in news reports that the state of California is banning outside fire pits and fire places as well as preventing the installation of fireplaces in new homes under construction. My question is, is this true and does this affect people who would like to smoke meats/poulty/etc. in that state? I know it's not an important question but I just thought it was interesting. Ohio recently passed a smoking ban and they had to clarify whether or not smokers in restaurants (big commercial smoking rigs) were intended as whell as cigarette smokers. Thanks for your input.
