: Hi. I have been told that BBQing on one's balcony is illegal by fire code. My question is whether I would be able to use an electric grill (like a George Forman Grill) to cook outside? My landlord says no, but I though I would check rather than just taking his word for it.

: Thanks.

Probably; the fire code restriction is to prevent fires from obvious sources: out-of-control lighter fluid on coals, spiled coals, exploding gas tanks, etc. And to prevent toxic gases from entering your and your neighbors apartments.

You can use that grill indoors in NYC and you can use electric appliances on you balcony, so you should be able to use that grill on your balcony.

Call the Fire Inspector's office to get the real scoop, then post his answer here. Start on their website: Fire on NYC.GOV.

Neighbors might think it's not electric and call the cops anyway...
