Yes, EPA did set limits on wood-burning stoves in the 1980s.  That
situation is not comparable to the backyard barbecue greenscam,
however.  Wood-burning stove emissions include particulate emissions
and in some areas of the country represent a large proportion of ambient
particulate levels.  Wood-burning stove emissions can be altered by the
design of the stove, whereas backyard barbecue emissions can be
changed only by changing fuel types.
