We allow both the new kind of mobile fire pits (NO hand dug/ring of stone ones, please) and gas or charcoal grills. Please keep open fires small and a minimum 30 feet away from the house and other combustibles (such as your household propane tank) and off the lawn, as the heat kills the grass. Pull the grill away from the siding if you like to keep yours on the porch. (Siding melts, we had this happen once, sadly) Be smart, keep an eye on your fire at all times and soak it out cold with plenty of water when you are done with it. Monitor the grill while you are cooking and turn it off when you are done.
