Electric Grills: Perfect for Apartments & Condo’s

July 24th, 2015

If you just purchased a condo, or maybe just signed a lease for a new apartment – what can you do if you love to grill but you don’t have a large outdoor space or can’t have a fire? Because multi-family properties have different fire codes than single family homes, you need to make sure what you can and cannot use for outdoor cooking! Many apartment buildings and condos do not allow gas or charcoal grills on balconies for safety reasons, but electric grills are often allowed. The technology in electronic grills has advanced to the point where you can do the same things with an electric grill that you can with a gas grill which typically can cost hundreds (often thousands) more.

The Legacy 2 Electric Cook Number™ Grill can sear, roast and even comes with the patented Cook Number System™, taking the guess work out of grilling. It is compact in size, perfect for smaller balconies, and can also be used traveling with an RV, camping, tailgating, and more! The real point is you can still have all the amenities found in a large back yard without actually having the extra outdoor space!

The custom process starts with a simple discussion on what your vision for the space is. What purpose will the space have- entertaining, relaxing, dining, etc.? Is there any landscaping to include? If it is an outdoor kitchen, will there be a grill or any special appliances? Once the finishes and materials are decided our engineering team will work with the customer to get a finished sketch done.
