A spacious backyard is not needed in order to create a great grilling environment. Even urban lifestyles with some outdoor space can have enough room to be able to have an ample sized barbeque and not the kind that is set up on two cinder blocks either. In reality, only a small space is needed even in the largest setting because the grilling space only takes up a couple of feet, so you really only need enough room for the grill and some space between you and the entrance to the home. Another thing to keep in mind is to not set anything combustible next to the house. Be sure to know the rules and guidelines of your apartment or condo for grilling outdoors, there may be some limitations to know beforehand.
How much room does a barbeque actually need in order to enjoy grilling and keep the space comfortable? 6 feet is the usually the norm for a small place to set up your outdoor grill and the biggest grill that will fit in the allowed space is the one you should get. Even if the grill is a tight fit, you will use it more and have better cooking results. Be sure to take down different measurement ideas to be able to accommodate this. There are many residents who have figured out a way to edge in a 7 foot grill and a cooking island to do all the preparation on the deck or allotted space. This is a very important aspect because a smaller grill will limit your size capacity for certain meats. Will you be content with just limiting your outdoor cooking to burgers and hotdogs, or is taking up a couple more feet worth more food options?
