Hello,
I am an new member and am in the process of ordering an new BBQ concession/competition trailer to which I plan to add a charcoal/wood smoker to an covered open back porch on the trailer.

I was informed by a California based trailer manufacturer that California does not allow wood smokers and the smoker must be NSF certified. Yet I have been to many competitions and vending locations that have wood smokers.

I obviously don't want to spend money on a piece of equipment that I am not going to be able to use.
Can anyone give me any info that may help me in my decision.

Thanks, and I look forward to meeting you in the future.
