    I guess this business makes me air on the side of caution LOL. We all know that burning coals emit Carbon Monoxide, but i guess in a ash bucket there isnt enough to worry about? i guess that woud depend on how much hot coal was in there, i would still put it outside.

    This reminds me of a question I was going to ask. I like to test smoke detectors with real smoke to verify that they are working. Was wondering if its OK to test the CO detector in the "real world" too, say by holding it up to a car tailpipe or something? I guess my question is, not being familiar with how they work, can testing them this way decrease their working lifespan? Most CO detectors are only good for 4-7 years, so I wasn't sure how the detection materials get "used up"?

    Every CO detector manual I have ever seen specifically says not to test them with car exhaust because it shortens life span. Sometimes it shortens it to about five minutes.
