Yes. Barbecues are permitted on no burn notice days.
No burn notice days can be declared by Department of Planning and Environment to prevent pollution from smoke. A notice is published online and in the public notices section of The Sydney Morning Herald on the day it is in force.
Total fire bans
A no burn-notice differs from a total fire ban. A total fire ban is declared by the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) to prevent fires.
Total fire bans and barbecues
The RFS has strict requirements relating to barbecues on total fire ban days and not all barbecues can be used.
A no burn notice or total fire ban overrides any permit.
