Is the BBQ Gazebo Safe?

May 06, 2022 3 min read

Warmer weather means more time outdoors in the backyard. Summer in particular is known as the best time for outdoor entertaining, cold drinks, and especially barbecues. But when it's too sunny outside, or when the rain comes, you may give up on the idea of a delicious barbecue feast outdoors. Grilling under the bbq shelter in your backyard would be a good idea if you don't want to miss out on great food because of the weather. But some people may be concerned about whether grilling under a gazebo is a fire hazard, thus posing a risk to the cook and any guests around or under the gazebo. So, is it safe to barbecue under a bbq pergola?

What is the purpose of it?
Typically, the bbq gazebo is comparable to an outdoor kitchen. It differs from a typical gazebo in that the sides are open to allow smoke from the grill to escape. Most are designed with a double roof to allow for maximum airflow and additional ventilation. Also grill gazebos can provide the chef with a variety of great additions such as hooks for grilling tools and even racks for sauces and dressings. BBQ canopy's main purpose is to protect you from harsh weather elements such as sun and rain. This means you can cook all year round without having to worry about overheating your outdoor cooking station and preventing rain from getting onto your grill and food. Therefore, its canopy material is UV resistant and waterproof. On top of that, they will provide excellent aesthetics and presence for your patio or outdoor picnic.

BBQ Canopy

Is it safe to grill under it?
It is safe to grill under the bbq canopy; the bbq gazebo is specially designed for grilling safety. It is open on all four sides and has special vents above the grill area. This means that most of the heat generated will reach the bottom of the roof before it has time to dissipate, creating no fire hazards. At the same time, its frame is made of the metal which resists rust, corrosion, and chipping, and the durable canopy fabric makes it ideal for long-term use. As a result, in addition to the risk of fire, the heat generated by the grill will not scorch or distort the structure of this gazebo. They are also easily and securely installed on grass, solid brick or even wood floors for added security.

Cook Under the BBQ Gazebo

What are the safety precautions to take when cooking under it?
Although it is safe to grill under your bbq pergola, we can still have some accidents while grilling. Therefore, you should take safety precautions when cooking food under that gazebo.

  • To protect life and property, homeowners should have proper fire extinguishers, fire blankets, and sand buckets in their barbecue gazebos. In case there are any accidents leading to a small fire when you can even deal with it. If it does not respond, call the emergency fire service.
  • Place the grill shelter 2 feet or 10 feet away from your house, garage, carport, etc. from the grill. Make sure your grill is not near any deck railings, siding or low hanging branches that could catch fire. In addition to the safety aspect, this will prevent smoke and odors from wafting into your home.
  • Your gazebo must be placed on a sturdy surface that will not tip over and securely fastened to the ground. Heat can damage your lawn or floor, so pavers, concrete or stone are the ideal place for your outdoor kitchen. It is also a good way to prevent accidents caused by a gazebo tipping over during high winds.

A bbq pergola is a great addition to your home and can see you and your guests spending lots of time, day and night, having fun and making memories. Grilling under a bbq gazebo is usually safe. Having an open structure to vent the smoke from cooking is the most important factor. However, when grilling under this gazebo, be sure to follow safety precautions as well. This way you can be sure that outdoor gazebo grilling is almost completely safe.
