Trust me pst - if I had a place to cook outdoors I would. I've even been know to smoke briskett and turkeys when it was 18-degrees and 14-inches of snow on the ground when I lived in Colorado!

I live in a 2nd floor apartment (no balcony) and the fire dept. passed a new ordinance for apt. dwellers 4-5 years ago ... no outdoor grills within 10-ft of any overhanging structure or foliage - cooking or storage. That means the only place I can cook, or store a grill, outdoors is in the middle of the driveway or parking lot! Needless to say - I gave my smoker to my son who has a house.

I have to be stealth. If I want to grill - I have to do it on a Hibatchi in the fireplace. If I want to smoke something ... I have to use a stovetop smoker.
howdy cowboy mike,
i used to have an apartment with a balcony that had the same fire laws, but i checked it out and there was nothing about electric grills, like that giant george forman thing. most town ordinances only preclude open fire and/or charcoal grills. they're not quite the same thing, but at least you get to cook outdoors.
