The agency announced that it is funding a University of California project to limit emissions resulting in grease drippings with a special tray to catch them and a “catalytic” filtration system.
The $15,000 project has the “potential for global application,” said the school.
The school said that the technology they will study with the EPA grant is intended to reduce air pollution and cut the health hazards to BBQ “pit masters” from propane-fueled cookers.
A simpler, cheaper, and tastier solution is just to grill over charcoal.
Overblown pollution concerns aside, the main problem with grilling over gas is that it sucks.
