Why can't people simply barbecue indoors with window open when it's cold outside?

    Yeah what's the worst that could happen? Your clothes get a little smoky, you choke yourself with the smoke, you burn the house down. Seems solid to me. 

    But honestly truly, I also wish we could barbecue inside.

    Charcoal makes a lot of carbon monoxide.  You're not even supposed to use it in your fireplace, in fact a lot of whole families have died from burning charcoal in their fireplaces and filling up the room with carbon monoxide.

    Years ago someone gave us a stovetop 'grill' for Christmas.  It goes over a gas or electric burner, it's made of cast aluminum with like 'fins' on it to simulate the bars of a grill (as opposed to a 'grill pan', which have been around forever).  It filled the kitchen with smoke so we never used it much.

    They can. It would just smell like it for weeks with minimum ventilation. That's not even hitting on probably setting a fire when the decision maker is this stupid.

    The carbon monoxide it will generate could be lethal.

    Because no one wants smoke getting into their walls and fabrics with their house smelling like a grill long after they barbecued.
