BBQ-safe locations

Locate your BBQ's in a safe area

When you plan the location of your outdoor kitchen, think about what is around, and ensure that the site chosen is a safe distance from any flammable materials for example thatch roofs etc.

Safe location for gas BBQ: 

A huge amount of heat comes out of the back of a gas BBQ, so ensure that the gas BBQ isn’t situated in front of any flammable materials, for example window frames, artificial living walls, hedges, flammable cladding etc. Note that if you have a ‘feature wall’ behind your gas BBQ, that reduces the risk, as it acts as a heat shield.

Safe location for Chef’s Anvil:

As the Chef’s Anvil is open fire, We recommend that it isn’t used in the vicinity of anything that could catch alight from sparks for example – thatch roofs, oil tanks, timber buildings etc. Ensure the Anvil is placed on a non-flammable surface to prevent any damage or fire risk. We don’t recommend putting the Chef’s Anvil under a covered area. 

Safe location for Charcoal BBQ:

Ensure the location of your charcoal BBQ is away from flammable materials, i.e. thatch roofs and oil tanks etc. Similarly, do not place it directly in front of any materials that could easily combust, for example artificial living walls, flammable cladding etc.

Safe location for Voltiq Electric BBQ: 

A huge amount of heat comes out of the back of an electric BBQ, so ensure that the electric BBQ isn’t situated in front of any flammable materials, for example, window frames, artificial living walls, hedges, flammable cladding etc. Note that if you have a ‘feature wall’ behind your electric BBQ, that reduces the risk, as it acts as a heat shield.

Choose your location and design your kitchen safely, and above all, have fun!
