What’s the Best Grill for an Apartment Balcony?


How can you provide a full-on barbeque experience in a confined space? In this blog, we'll look at how you can squeeze in an electric grill to get more value out of your development.

Grill Envy from the Apartment Balcony


First, the savory fragrance of someone grilling comes wafting across your neighbor’s balcony. Then, they see the origin of the intoxicating aroma sitting on your balcony—a gorgeous, gourmet, electric outdoor grill. Then, “grill envy” sets in.


Grill envy is the emotion conjured when one person has a beautiful bbq grill on their balcony and another does not—  and that’s what you’ll be cooking up when you’re the one with the electric outdoor grill everyone else desires!


Every time the appetizing aroma of your juicy grilled skirt steaks, delectable chicken, and succulent fish and grilled zucchini starts wafting throughout your condominium or apartment complex, your neighbors are going to be salivating. When the aroma of you grilling up a feast begins, they are going to be over-the-top jealous. Frankly, most people don’t like it when you have something that they can’t have.

Right now, they’re probably thinking “… but we can’t own a BBQ grill in our complex!”



Bypass Regulations with an Electric Apartment Balcony Grill


Most complexes say no to grills. And that would be the case for a typical charcoal or gas grill.


However, as property managers are becoming more aware that outdoor electric grills can comply with “NO OPEN FLAME LAWS and ORDINANCES”, the joys of grilling are returning to many gourmet grillers. In addition, certain flameless electric grills can have top-of-the-line temperature controls and automatic shut-off safety features that actually outperform the traditional gas or charcoal grills.




So, what is the best grill for apartment balcony grilling? Hands down, an ElectriChef drop-in grill.
