Modern condos are much more functional than ever before and life in a condo is often a lot better than living in an individual home. Condos are often a lot more affordable and most of these buildings include a lot of extra activities that residents can enjoy so they can remain social, active and healthy. E2 Condos, for example, is a high rise building in Midtown Toronto that will soon accommodate more than 450 condo owners. Life in this condo will be almost like living in a small and caring community. The condo is ultimately safe because residents will have an indoor connection to the Eglinton Subway Station and the building consists of 60 shops where residents can find everything they will need. Living in one of these condos are absolutely glorious because these condos are designed to reduce your need for transportation and to enhance your social life. You will be surrounded by plenty of parks and there are plenty of social rooms where residents can interact and meet up with one another.
So how do you barbecue in a condo?
The only downside to these condos is that barbecuing can be tough. It’s not exactly like you can simply light a fire in your apartment and grill meats. But grilling isn’t entirely off the menu just because you live in a high rise building. Here is how you can still enjoy all of those yummy meats and social gatherings that derive from barbecuing.
Get an electric grill
Electric grills are your first option. These tiny grills are incredibly functional and so easy to use. You simply plug them into a power source and can then start grilling. The grills are suitable for a wide range of foods and foods prepared on these grills might not have the smoky aroma of fire-grilled meats but the meats are still glorious!
Order from your restaurant
This is another good option if you are craving a good piece of meat. Simply head over to your in-building restaurant and order a plate of grilled ribs or steak. You might be paying a bit extra for your meal but you can sit back and relax with friends while someone else is taking care of all the cooking.
Head over to the park
Plenty of condos like the E2 Condos are close to local parks. The Moore Park, for example, has a fantastic picnic area and even has an own barbecue facility. For the wood barbecue you can simply bring your own firewood but if you want to tag along with your own barbecue then a portable gas barbecue shouldn’t be too hard to get set up. You can invite friends over, have fun at the picnic tables, barbecue delicious meats and enjoy nature and bird watching. Parks are much more fun than home barbecue sessions because there is much more room, much more activities to enjoy and there are usually a lot more people to associate with.
Don’t be afraid to invest in a condo. It is entirely possible for you to enjoy a full and happy life with plenty of barbecue sessions even though you don’t have a backyard.
