The house had an attached sun room. The sun room had the same roof as the house. The sun room had a brick coal grill with a chimney. Does that chimney need to meet the same codes as if it were serving a wood burning fireplace?
Yes… there are two differentiating fuels… Solid (including Gel and non-vaporizing liquids) and Liquid (gas).
Jeff, what exactly is this above;
And by liquid gas, you mean Propane?
Gases such as propane (LPG) that are delivered to the fixture as a liquid, but burned as a gas. NG is also included in this category.
A non-vaporizing liquid would be such as alchohol… very common in century homes in my area, typically in homes for the elite/wealthy. Burns such as gel, without being pressurized/vaporized and burned as a gas. On first view they appear as an ordinary solid fuel burning fireplace. On closer inspection, there is a metal tray that pulls out revealing the cavity where the alcohol is stored for combustion. I know I have a pic somewhere. If I can find one in the next day or two, I’ll be sure to post it.
Wow never heard of alcohol being used. I will have to look that up later
Gel is the modern replacement for the old liquid alcohol… much safer!
Well, I would not think that gel fuel would need a chimney other than a Poo Poo Platter at a Chinese Restaurant.
Perhaps it is different in your jurisdiction, but in mine, it is considered a solid fuel, thus it is required to have a flue as such.
Don’t know about the Poo-Poo Platter! A local favorite??? :shock:
I spelled it wrong. Sorry.
Dam, now I am hungry again. :mrgreen:
I used to order a Pu Pu platter at Yangs in St. Paul MN.
It would come to your table with a gel fuel fired Hibachi to grille the goodies on.
It was fantastic.
Enter Fire Marshall who would no longer ALLOW them to serve it that way.
I ordered it once after that. Not any where near as good or fun.
Too much government for me.
Ahhhh. Thanks Mike. Now I understand Marcels connection!
Have you been to David Fong’s in South Minneapolis? IMO the best Chinese this side of Chicago!
We need to “do lunch” there sometime!
Sounds great. I look forward to it.
I’m bound to be up that way in the next few weeks. I’ll give you a call.
Juan, are you talking about a charcoal grill for cooking?
I cannot imagine that being allowed inside a living area in Fort Pierce, FL…
Yes it was a charcoal grill for cooking. It was in a sunroom.
Juan, why even care about a chimney?
Isn’t the far more important issue what the f u c k is a charcoal grill doing installed inside a living space!?!
With all the proper precautions taken, I have no issue with it. Charcoal is just charred wood!
Btw… not everyone uses “fluid” to light their charcoal. In fact, it is outlawed in many areas! Get with the times buddy-boy!! :mrgreen:
Pete please elaborate. I don’t see the problem. It was built as a fireplace with a little rack installed. They were obviously using it for charcoal grilling. What is the problem?
