Vent hoods for outside cooking

Check with your local building department. To get a good answer be ready with some specs specific to the site, the equipment, and the nature of the operation.

No! Just think if that were the case. If your thinking of cooking outdoors for a group of people at a catered affair you may want to check with the City and Fire Dept about FireExtinguishers.

Building departments and fire departments usually work hand and hand together in these situations to make sure that regulations are met.

Define "outside". Is it out in the open or under a tent? Temporary or permanent? BBQ or what? Professional or private?

In all cases I have never heard of a hood BUT instructions for the equipment being used as well as common sense should be followed. It's not a good idea to grill burgers and steaks under a tent that will fill with smoke and choke your guests. If this is a professional gig, the fire or building department will want to look around see that you have proper fire extinguishers etc.
