I guess the 100's of pizzas I've
cooked on my wood burning outdoor pizza oven don't fall under the Safe Pizza Act.
Once again I'm screwed.

As per TOB Recreational fires are OK “Recreational Fire”
What is a “Recreational Fire”: An outdoor fire, burning materials other than rubbish for the purposes of;
pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth or similar purposes. Recreational fires are permissible within
the Town of Brookhaven without prior approval.
Most times the average homeowner is interested in a small outdoor fire for enjoyment by family and friends.
This is known as a recreational fire. The Town of Brookhaven respects this interest, but is obligated to enforce
the Fire Code of New York State, which requires the following, when maintaining a recreational fire:
1) A fire shall not be conducted within 25 feet of any structure or combustible materials. Conditions which
could cause a fire to spread within 25 feet of a structure shall be eliminated prior to ignition.
Examples: Structures: decks, sheds, houses. Combustible Materials: fallen leaves, mulch.
2) The fuel area shall be contained and be 3 feet or less in diameter and 2 feet or less in height.
3) Fire shall be continuously attended until the fire is completely extinguished.
4) A method of immediate extinguishment of the fire, such as a garden hose (charged with water), fire
extinguisher, water barrel with bucket, etc. shall be maintained at the ready at all times.

Really? Is that same fire still a problem if it's in a Weber kettle grill with a steak on top of it? Have they banned BBQs in Brookhaven town too? And if BBQs are still OK, can I toss a few charcoal briquets into my fire pit to stay legal while my kids are roasting marshmallows? What a bunch of nonsense.

I regularly remind myself how unbelievably lucky I am to have really, really good neighbors.

You have not met my neighbor he complained to the DEC about my woodstove ,my smoker and told another neighbor I barbeque to much

Another thing I built last year is this below.... weight is 1400 + lbs, come on a pallet and it goes together like legos... no cement all just holds itself together. ( about $1 per lb on sale )

Burns oak just fine. Not the best finish in the world, but good enought...some people cover with stone, i left it plain

You may want to check into that, open burning is Legal until someone complains


just repeating what was said and was was told to me and what has actually happened to me. It's almost embarrassing to have a few fire trucks show up with lights and sirens. So as adults we get to make choices and choose battles. If you have neighbors that are troublesome than expect issues. I don't care what people do for relaxation.

Two of my neighbors are cops and both have fire pits going every night during the summer so I guess I rolled the dice good.

Yes... and it works too. Comes with a stainless mesh rack and 3 or 4 slots for the rack. I tried it, all I did was cover the doors with foil to hold in the heat.

Buy the pre made kits from the major paver companies. 500 bucks or so and everything need. Yeah on windy nights it sucks and I wish I had something with a chimney to pull the smoke. If I did it again, I'd probably do the outdoor fireplace instead and put it caddy corner...don't think you'll get as much heat though.

I was thinking about building a full fire place with a chimney but agree we probably won't get much heat for what we are looking for.

Gas-controlled pits are incredible, however there's in no way like the smell of genuine woodsmoke to get yourself into the pre-winter soul. This wood-consuming Sunnydaze pit has all that you need (beside logs and some paper) to get a wonderful controlled blast as it was done in the good 'ol days. 
 
Estimating 36" in width and gauging 29 pounds, this roundabout pit is produced using steel and accompanies a screened top to shield remains from flying. A metal tong for altering your fire place is additionally included. Plan shrewd, it includes an alluring crossweave design that mixes well with any tasteful. Analysts note that the Sunnydaze pit is anything but difficult to gather, and note that the plan advances wind stream — an unquestionable requirement when you're tending blazes as opposed to simply turning a handle.
