Re grilling and “turkey fryers”, I believe the regulations should simply conform with the current regulations of the Delaware Fire Department which has currently adopted the National Fire Prevention Code – no more no less. I believe this organization is considered the “expert” in weighing the risks of our activities causing a fire vs personal freedom and the pleasure of outdoor cooking. These regulations are as follows: (Note: there are no regulations advised for one and two family dwellings. Note: turkey fryers are not differentiated from other cooking methods). Certainly if individual condominium units want to have stricter regulations that could be their prerogative.
The specific code sections are as follows:
• NFPA 1:10.10.6.1 (2015): For other than one- and two-family dwellings, no hibachi, grill, or other similar devices used for cooking, heating, or any other purpose shall be used or kindled on any balcony, under any overhanging portion, or within 10 ft (3 m) of any structure.
• NFPA 1:10.10.6.1.1 (2015): Listed electric, tabletop grills, not to exceed 200 square inches of cooking surface, or other similar apparatus shall be permitted.
• NFPA 1:10.10.6.2 (2015): For other than one-and two-family dwellings, no hibachi, grill or other similar devices used for cooking shall be stored on a balcony.
• NFPA 1:10.10.6.3 (2015): Listed equipment permanently installed in accordance with its listing, applicable codes, and manufacturer’s instructions shall be permitted.
