“Dear PoPville,

I believe you’ve answered this question in the past, but perhaps with summer in full swing you might be able to provide some guidance as to what the regulations are in DC in regards to BBQ grills. I’m pretty sure that open flames are not allowed within 10 feet of anything combustible and balconies, but where I’m confused is, I have a ground floor patio. While I do not have at least 10 feet, I have read on the web that there are exceptions for natural gas grills. Calls to DCRA have not yielded me any definitive response as of yet. I would love to have a gas grill on my patio and would be willing to install a natural gas line to get that done, but I need to find out if it’s legal first. Any way you can help me find that out? Thanks!”
