BBQ - Are there restrictions? [apartment rules]

Hi,

My hubby and I are moving to Zurich in the next few months and we wanted to find out if there are restrictions on BBQing in apartment accommodation. If we can, would it be cheaper to bring a grill out with us? Thx

Re: BBQ - Are there restrictions?

You'll need a gas grill and even then it's dependent on the rules in the apartment block. I'm not sure if the uk gas fittings are the same as the Swiss ones, personally I'd buy one out here.

Don't grill near your neighbours expensive new bushes.

Re: BBQ - Are there restrictions?

gas or electric bbq grills are almost everywhere allowed,but ALWAYS check with the agency or landlord,some can be petty and forbid it and in some 'heritage' ( heimatschutz) houses it is alltogether forbidden.

Some houses have got a free-to-use-for-all-tenants big solid BBQ grill in their gardens.

One of the most important things to consider is, to work as smoke and smell free as possible, now this may sound like a contradiction in itself but what I mean is, for example, not to use half a bottle of ignition liquid or use unsuitable things to start a fire and thus create a lot of smoke and smell.

For example,we use a bunsenburner like on the photo
to kick start our charcoals in the grill, works a treat and very quick too and absolutley no smell nor smoke emits.

I think we already had a thread about this topic, sometime ago,but i can not find it at the moment!



Edit: found the relevant thread

As mentioned above, it depends a bit on what's specified in your contract.
People in itself are pretty tolerant of bbq smells, unless you're really smoking out the neighborhood.

I posted a solution here

If you don't know these trays, have a look here (last but one page from the bottom) "Alu-Grillschale 4.50,- for 10" or enameled for 7.50,-

Others put a waterfilled tray underneath the meat to catch the drippings.
