While it may seem like a good idea to grill under a tent to provide some shade or protection from the elements, it is actually not recommended due to safety concerns. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), “Grilling accidents cause an annual average of 10,200 home fires, causing $123 million in property damage.”
Grilling under a tent can create a fire hazard because the heat from the grill can cause the tent to catch fire. Additionally, the lack of ventilation under the tent can cause a buildup of smoke and carbon monoxide, which can be dangerous. It is recommended to always grill outside in an open area with plenty of ventilation.
In the words of Alton Brown, chef and host of Food Network’s “Good Eats,” “Grilling takes the formality out of entertaining. Everyone wants to get involved.”
Here are some interesting facts about grilling:
- The most popular day for grilling in the United States is the Fourth of July.
- Hamburgers are the most commonly grilled food item in the U.S., followed by steak, hot dogs, and chicken.
- The average American household owns two grills.
- The first gas grill was invented in the 1960s by Don McGlaughlin, the founder of the Chicago Combustion Corporation.
- Grilling can be traced back to ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and Romans, who used fire to cook their food.
- In South Korea, grilling is a popular cooking method for marinated meat dishes like bulgogi and galbi.
- The world record for the largest barbecue ever was set in Uruguay in 2008, when 1,250 people cooked 26,400 pounds of meat.
In summary, while grilling under a tent may seem like a good idea, it is not recommended due to safety concerns. It is important to grill outside in an open area with plenty of ventilation to avoid fire hazards. As Alton Brown points out, grilling is a great way to bring people together and add a little informality to any gathering.

The Master Canopy Top is a canopy specifically made for grilling, with enough room to fit a smoker and several side trays. It comes with a hook and light on top, bolts to stake into the ground or wood post, and S-hooks. Despite the lack of straps to keep it tight against the pole, it is quite sturdy and worth the price for the shade it provides and the convenience of having a little side piece that can shade one side when the sun sets. The YouTuber also recommends a magnetic light that can be used to read the grill temperature and provides links for these products, noting that purchasing through his links can help his channel continue to review and showcase cool products.

You can’t grill under most outdoor tents. It is a dangerous fire hazard and the material will get smoky and greasy in a matter of minutes. Only grill under a tent if it’s at least eight feet tall and open on all sides.
Grilling under a canopy tent is not recommended due to the potential risks involved, especially for canopy tents with walls – enclosed spaces. If you want to grill safely, use your grill in an open space since it provides plenty of ventilation, reducing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation.
It is not recommended to use a grill under a pop up tent because the proximity of the heat source to the roof material can cause it to melt. In addition, inadequate ventilation can cause dangerous carbon monoxide build-up. Other risks include damage to the structure and fire hazard.
