Ct Patriot: This might seem like a trivial thing to some. And an outright offense to die hard grillers of America. Of which I am proudly one. But the bigger issue is the mircomanagement of every aspect of our earthly existence. From what we drive, to where we live, what we say, think and eat. Is it just me or is anyone else feeling like a fish in a fishbowl? Land of the free? Wait until the real EPA regulations are unleashed to destroy whats left of American manufacturing, farming and innovation. Its not about the Environment, never was. It’s about total control and using fear to get you to gladly give up your freedom. Let that sink in, I have some grilling to do….
Holy Smoke: EPA wants to regulate BBQ grills?
We had better start hoarding lighter fluid and metal 55-gallon drums

Hide your wieners. And your burgers, and your chicken quarters and your T-bones. It appears the EPA has funded a $15,000 grant geared at among other things “limiting the overall air pollution … and alleviating some of the acute health problems” associated with backyard barbecue grills.
Students at the University of California Riverside received the grant as part of the federal agency’s People, Prosperity and Planet (P3) Program. Isn’t that just peachy?
Doesn’t the People, Prosperity and Planet (P3) Program have an oddly Cold War-ish sound? Kinda like the “Peoples Republic of China” or Soviet gulags being called “re-education camps.”
The Cali kids want to develop a “catalytic filtration system” that prevents grease fire flareups using metal shields between the grub and coals. The overall pointy head plan also calls for a filter and fan setup used to dissipate the smoke and noxious fumes generated by the grilling process. The students feel their designs have the “Potential for global application.”
Oh great, along with the Speech Police, the Thought Police and the Nobody Should Have Fun Anywhere at Anytime Police, we now have the Backyard Grill PO-lice. Isn’t anything sacred anymore?
We’re talking Americana here. People gathering and cooking outside, red and white checkered tablecloths on the picnic table, the kiddos playing a game of pickup baseball and a few adult beverages being consumed. Yeah, that’s about as environmentally subversive as you can get.
Put it right up there with the BP oil spill and Chernobyl. How can Western civilization survive Kingsford burning and Dad’s secret recipe sauce being slathered over succulent meat morsels?
