The exhaust is that of a burning tree (if a squirrel did not get out in time) , no chemicals, no gas, only tree and meat.
There is no additives or preservatives, I make the rub, it is housed in glass containers not plastic.
Plus I use all natural meats, no additives, roids or hormones. That to me is green, very green.
I actually hate the term green and the fact that it is a sales pitch now. As a nation we have built ourselves a very large garbage dump and it's only common sense that maybe we should reduce a bit of the trash and figure out some creative and money making ways to deal with waste.
Well said, and I guess some of the point of my post above was missed. Point being, with minor changes, default BBQ can be called green, and you can charge a premium for it to boot.
