BBQ placement and fire safety
I'm getting a new house and I'm trying to figure out where to put the natural gas hookup for my future barbecue. My house/backyard is pretty small, so my options are rather limited and less than ideal. Anyway, I thought I had it figured out, but then it dawned on me... the barbecue would be right up against a wooden fence!
I did a quick Google search on this, and in addition to the fence, some articles suggest keeping your barbecue away from the house (at least 10'!). This seems pretty ridiculous to me. I was hoping to put it as close to my brick house/natural gas hookup as possible, especially since a long exposed hose would be way too tempting to my curious dog. Anyone have any suggestions? Where did you setup your barbecue?
