Hi all,

It's prime grilling time here in Wisconsin, I normally have the wheels of my Weber grill sitting on my patio, open all around and up. I was just wondering, can I move the Grill up to my porch, open all round, but with ceiling (8 feet, floor to ceiling). Does anybody grill on their open porch, or garage with door open?

Or am I just looking for trouble ? :horror: :pissed:

Thanks.

I grill on my patio (sounds like your setup - no walls, 8 ft ceiling) and I'm still kicking.

I've grilled in a screened in porch, got kinda smokey. I put a box fan blowing out to suck out the smoke. Worked ok.

The only thing to be concerned with is if the grill did one of those "magical" backfires, you would have a huge problem on your hands. Once the tank is surrounded by flames, it can be tough to get in there and shut off the tank valve.

In New Jersey propane grills are not allowed within ten feet of the structure, at least in condos and apartment settings. Several years ago there was a fire at a condo started by a backfiring grill, burned down most of the complex.

The Weber grill at my house runs off the natural gas supply, with a nice shutoff valve about 8" from the grill.

Yeah, it's been so warm here in WI, that I've been grilling quite a bit more than most winters. I haul my Weber Gold B into the garage every winter. Then, to grill, I back out a vehicle and cook about 6 feet from the garage door.

I grill on my porch all the time. It's open on 2 sides.

Just keep the grill off the siding and you should be fine. In a garage, you'd need to make sure you left the door open to prevent carbon monoxide buildup and make sure you kept it away from your lawn mower gas and whatnot.

Charcoal?

If you're using a 3 legged webber with charcoal, I'd say you'd be asking for it if your porch has a wood floor. If it's concrete you'd probably be OK. You'll need to keep in mind that burning charcoal produces one HECK of a lot of Carbon Monoxide, along with several know carcongens, and a taste that can't be beat.

Since you are using coals be careful of hot pieces and ash missing the catch tray and dropping on your wood porch. You might not notice it until hours later.....fire.

Also if in a garage be careful of gas fumes from a water heater or any other source such as cars. Is it worth a BBQ dinner for the consequences. :naive:

move it ten feet outside. The only thing that stops me from grilling is rain. I grew up in WI and grilled almost every Sunday. Sub Zero just means using more charcol
