A Barbecue (BBQ) is an apparatus for cooking meat and various other foods. We might add a BBQ to the map with the tag amenity=bbq if there is a permanently built place for having a BBQ or grill.

This might include provision of the fuel, but more typically would require you to bring your own (e.g. the structure just has a grill shelf for putting the charcoal/wood).

Additional Tags

  • covered=yes/no -- default is no.
  • fuel=wood/electric/charcoal

  • amenity=baking_oven - An oven
  • oven=* - To describe the type of an oven
  • stove=* - The availability of a stove at a tourism=* accommodation
  • tourism=picnic_site - A place set-up for people to have a picnic e.g. with tables and chairs. An amenity=bbq might be used part of this, or alongside it.
  • amenity=fast_food - A fast food outlet. This tag should be used instead of amenity=bbq where there is a commercial operation to provide grilled meat as a fast food outlet. The tag amenity=bbq is more intended for facilities allowing you to have your own BBQ.
  • bring_own_bbq=yes - tag proposed[1] and considered as a good idea[2] for places where one is allowed to bring barbecue, but there is no grill or firepit provided on site.
