In The Sims, barbecue grills are found on most Vacation Island lots and on some Downtown lots. They cannot be found on Old Town community lots, but can be placed on them. They are not available in Studio Town, or on Magic Town community lots. They can also be bought for residential use. All barbecue grills in The Sims have a Hunger rating of 4.
Using a barbecue grill costs §20, and always produces a plate of burgers. Using it on a residential lot is generally like preparing a group meal, except that the grill is a greater fire hazard. It's recommended that Sims have four or five Cooking points before using it.
Using a barbecue grill on a community lot is a bit different. The plate of burgers will be ignored by all Sims except for a) any members of the grilling Sim's family who are on the lot, or b) the grilling Sim's date (if any). Even they will ignore it after taking one serving, even if they're still hungry and there are still burgers on the plate. Even the Sim who grilled the plate of burgers will ignore it after taking one serving. Controllable Sims can be directed to take another burger from the plate, but will not do this autonomously. Also, townies and/or neighborhood Sims may grill autonomously, which can get costly because the controllable Sim(s) will be charged, unless the player is using a default replacement grill that has been fixed to prevent this. The player can direct controllable Sims to eat from these plates, so this can be used as an opportunity for socializing and relationship-building.

Depending on Cooking skill, a Sim may use a barbecue grill to prepare hot dogs, hamburgers, or grilled ribs. (Hot dogs and ribs can only be prepared on a grill.) If Seasons is installed, fish can be grilled, if it's available. Sims cannot grill on residential lots unless a refrigerator is present. Barbecue grills can be safely used indoors on community lots, but are a fire hazard if used indoors on residential lots. Sims can burn food when using a barbecue grill.
In The Sims 2, barbecue grills have become a standard way for Sims to feed themselves on community lots, where they seem to have replaced the carts, kiosks, and stands which were commonplace on community lots in The Sims. There is no charge for grilling on community lots, and non-selectable Sims will not grill autonomously unless a refrigerator is present. Selectable Sims might grill autonomously if they are hungry enough, but usually will not. When a Sim grills, they will serve the food they cook, and other Sims on the lot will come to eat it. The "Serve" action can be interrupted by the player, and it may be necessary to do this to make sure that the Sim grilling the food gets to eat some of it. If the "Serve" action is interrupted, other Sims on the lot may still take food from the serving platter.
In The Sims 2, there are two basic styles of barbecue grill. There are low-end 1x1 grills with a Hunger rating of 1, and high-end 1x2 grills with a Hunger rating of 10. However, FreeTime added a 1x1 grill which has a hunger rating of 10.
While Maxis did not include the ability to close a grill's lid, there is a mod at MTS which will add that option.

Since the invention of the propane grill, debates have raged among barbecue enthusiasts. Propane proponents argue that the absence of smoke allows one to "taste the meat, not the heat," while charcoal lovers insist that grilling isn't grilling without that classic smoky flavor. The Char-Pane can please everyone, allowing either propane grilling, charcoal grilling, or a combination of both!
Barbecuing in The Sims 3 A Sim using a barbecue grill
Barbecues are relatively similar in The Sims 3, as they depend on the cooking skill to make Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Cheesesteak, Tri-Tip Steak, and Grilled Salmon. Many grills are placed on community lots, and any Sim may cook on them when they are hungry. Barbecues raise the cooking skill when Sims use them.

Notes: Sims can gather to roast marshmallows, as well as fruits, vegetables, and fish.
The Portable Fire Pit generates six chairs around it if none are placed; but only generates as needed. For example, a Sim goes to roast a marshmallow. As soon as the action is queued up, a cheap-looking chair fades in by the fire pit. If multiple Sims go, then others will fade in—until then, the Sim will be sitting alone in a lonely chair by the pit.
