Bob, I have been thinking about this. There must be dozens of homes with wood stoves and fireplaces in your neighborhood. Anyone who has lived next door to someone who does not know how to work a stove, or burns misc. garbage in their fireplace, knows how much stinky smoke that makes, and it often trails along at ground level for hundreds of feet. You can’t do anything about those folks. What you can do is try your best to NOT be the person people think of when they smell smoke. “Oh its that Bob guy burning stuff again!” So, work on your charcoal system to make it as productive as possible with very little smoke. People around here wait for a rainy, dark day to burn their “question-ables” or for nightfall. Make your retort / outdoor charcoal system LOOK like a proper incinerator. Put up a carport for your wood-gas vehicles, maybe with a nice ivy-covered trellis on the nosy- neighbor view side. Keep your social camp fire pit neat, clean and safe in case the local fire marshall does come a calling. Keep a fire extinguisher visible.
