Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Medium Egg - Small Balcony

Wanted to share my setup. I live in an apartment with a very tiny balcony. Medium egg just barely fits there, but it does the job.

Technically, I am breaking the law, but every 3rd balcony in my neighborhood has a grill.

Only spotted one other egg though :)

    Wow it really does just fit. The shelf is almost just in the way, but I guess you need a place to put your plates. At least you can use it!!

    Theres a "no barbecue on the balcony" ordinance in your city?
    When I'm not Eggin', I'm scootin'   Eggin' and 'cueing from Temecula Ca; an hour from San Diego, an hour and five minutes from Palm Springs, and an hour and a half from Los Angeles (yeah, right. With THAT traffic?)

    I had a small in my condo downtown tampa. Though others grilled illegally, they werent throwing off tons of smoke. I would get really paranoid. No one ever said a word.

    Yep, my city has a law that grills cannot be within 10 feet of combustible material unless an automatic sprinkler system is installed.

    The police don't really enforce it, and my neighbors always appreciate the good smells.

    I really want a mini. A lot of times I cook for just my wife and myself.

    I can't justify $400+ for a mini though. 

    Definitely got my eye on the Vision Grill in this thread:

    Almost every city in the US bases their fire code on the NFPA Handbook which prohibits having charcoal fires on balconies, regardless of construction material.  So, it's probably illegal in any city with a fire code.

    It's been illegal wherever I've lived in Texas. Longview, Dallas, College Station. However, most places don't enforce it, I think you'd run into problems if you burnt the place down and it was determined to be caused by a charcoal fire on your balcony that was against the law....

    It was illegal in Orlando. The fire department showed up to my apartment back in college. Didn't do anything but said I would have to pay for their call if it happened again.

    Or feed them. Firemen(persons) love BBQ too.
