Are barbecue grills allowed on balconies in apartment or condominium complexes?

Barbecue grills are prohibited on all balconies unless it is fully protected by an automatic fire sprinkler system and the grill is fueled by propane gas with a cylinder size no greater than 2 1/2 pounds (i.e. small cylinder). Additional regulations may apply based upon the individual tenant lease and/or the homeowners association rules and regulations.  Occupants are strongly encouraged to utilize amenities provided by their individual complex for outside recreational cooking.

Storage of propane cylinders and/or barbecue grills, regardless of size, are not permitted to be stored in the common building tenant storage rooms/closets or common tenant parking garages.
