    Hello from Washington DC, and a question for other locals

    Hey all --

    I currently live in Northern Virginia and my wife and I are moving into a new house in the Capitol Hill area of DC. It appears the rules related to having a smoker, I have a Yoder Loaded Wichita, is that any open-flame or charcoal grill needs to be a minimum of 10 feet away from the house.

    Does anybody have any experience with the rules in DC? Having lived in DC for a number of years ago, I know that restrictions on things like BBQs are a lot more stringent than here in Virginia. I am just hopeful I don't have to get rid of my grill, that would be terrible.

    Anyway, any experiences that you can share are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
