I stopped in to see my engineer guy today….

Well actually, he called me because he needs help with something and I have some equipment that he needs to borrow, along with my help.

He finally talked to HIS guy (guess it was too much to ask that he let me know WHEN he talked to his guy)….  anyway….

His guy is the one that deals with kitchens and ventilation.  The actual mechanical engineer.

As far as he is concerned, with what I am doing, he says that I will not be producing grease laden vapors. So I should NOT need a commercial hood and fan.
And he us willing to stand behind that decision and sign off on it if it is questioned by any inspector.  WOOHOO!!

I get get to save THOUSANDS of $$  !!
