4 Tips For Choosing The Perfect Location For A Permanently Installed Gas Barbecue

Installing a full-sized barbecue connected to a permanent gas line allows you to cook anytime you like without having to worry about running out of fuel or hauling around heavy tanks. However, it only takes a single mistake made during the planning of the location for your new gas grill for a serious fire to start. Choosing the right location for this kind of outdoor cooking equipment takes forethought and careful consideration of the requirements of a gas-powered appliance.

Avoid Enclosed Spaces and Overhangs

Any structure that interferes with the airflow around a grill will create health risks for you and your family. This includes awnings and overhangs that would cover the grill, along with enclosed porches, screened in patios, and any other structures over or around the grill. Even placing the grill underneath a window or air conditioning unit can result in smoke and fumes entering the home unexpectedly. Look for an area with plenty of open airflows to prevent smoke and fumes from darkening exterior walls of the home as well.

Check Clearance Requirements

Each manufacturer specifies different spacing requirements based on the flame size and real-world testing of the grill you choose. Some grills require two feet or more between the appliance and any combustible materials, while others need just over a foot instead. Check the combustible space requirements for individual models before buying a specific grill if you want to install it near your home or porch without the risk of a serious structural fire. Remember these spacing limits when adding furniture around the grill as well since most patio and outdoor furniture is flammable in some way. Even landscaping features and trees need to adhere to these safety restrictions to prevent a fire from spreading across the property.

Create Clear Pathways

Grills are full of personal safety risks for you and your guests, from popping fats to waves of heat rolling off the surface when the hood is opened. You don't want the grill located in the middle of any major pathways around your property or so far from the home that it's hard to travel to the cook station and your kitchen. Invest in pathways with smooth and level surfaces when installing the grill so you don't have to invest in more improvements before you can safely use it.

Shorten the Gas Lines

Finally, try to plan the grill's location near existing gas line installations to shorten the amount of fuel line needed for installation. Shorter fuel lines translate to a safer, easier to maintain, and more affordable gas barbecue installation.
