Total Fire Ban

During a total fire ban, it is illegal to light or maintain a fire ‘out in the open'. See further explanation below.

In the event that a total fire ban is declared for the day of your event and you are unable to light your spit, we will credit your deposit toward the spit, charcoal and delivery cost for a period of 12 months from the date of the event.

However, you will be charged for the whole animal.

Total Fire Ban: advice from NSW Rural Fire Service 

We sought clarification from the NSW Rural Fire Service regarding the kind of structures in which our spits would be allowed to be lit and maintained during a total fire ban. Below is the advice provided to us by the NSW Rural Fire Service.

'As noted on the NSW RFS Website, (https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-information/fdr-and-tobans/total-fire-ban-rules) you cannot light, maintain or use a fire in the open, or to carry out any activity in the open that causes, or is likely to cause, a fire.

This includes the use of any device using a solid fuel (i.e. wood, charcoal, heat beads, briquettes etc) to produce a flame, spark, ember or is designed to smoulder and or produce smoke.

Though the cooking appliance you describe may be “under cover” as described in your enquiry, the cooking appliance is still not fully contained within an enclosed building. The structure you describe remains exposed to the open environment and elements and continues to pose a potential threat as an ignition source for a fire and or spread of that fire to occur. Therefore it is still considered to be “out in the open”.

Therefore, under these circumstances, this and other similar devices may not be used “out in the open” (outdoors) on a Total Fire Ban Day.'
