  • Wood Burning Ban

    Had everything ready to go...after lurking and collecting all kinds of info from these forums (thanks everyone,) I cleared my oven area, built an enclosing fence in the backyard, found and priced the materials and then headed down to the city and county of Denver offices only to find that while the manufacture of a wood-fired oven is legal and within zoning regulations, the burning of wood is not.

    So now what? Does anyone reading this live in Denver or other cities with wood burning bans and have found some way to circumvent this restriction? How about building the oven and running a gas line to it? Charcoal? Anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi Eric,
    I think you are mistaken (happily...).
    Those denver burning restrictions only apply on red polution day, and those days only occur during the winter. So occasionaly on a nice winter day, you will not be able to light your oven. Check out this web page and give them a call. You can burn your oven as long as you do not do it on a red pollution day.

    I am down in unincorporated douglas county, but I lived in Denver when I first came up with the idea to build an oven and I am sure that it is legal to have a wfo!

    Here is a link that mentions Denver specifically.
    Note that is says you cannot burn on "high pollution days"...

      I followed a few of the links and eventually spoke to somone who said the ban only applies to wood burning as a source of heat and open fire pits, but cooking appliances are exempt. Thanks so much for the information.

      Time to pour the slab...
