What does the code say about propane fired grills?
Portable LP-gas cooking equipment such as barbecue grills shall not be stored or used:
• on any porch, balcony or any other portion of a building;
• within any room or space of a building;
• within five feet of any combustible exterior wall;
• opening in any wall;

These rules do not apply to R-3 structures (one- or two-family dwelling units separated by a 2-hour fire separation assembly).
