It's always done in the backyard. Why would anyone smoke or grill in front of their houses? It seems like a backyard activity to me.
My daughter loves animals. I am a super clean freak. We have two dogs, two cats, and a rabbit in the back yard. I thought it was gross to cook around them (not judging anyone that does, I just didn't like it). So I kept all my grills on the side of the house and moved whatever I was going to use on the drive way for the day. I got tired of doing that, so over the summer I built a fenced in grilling patio on the side of the house. It is fenced in and has my PBC, Humphrey's, PK, UDS, a stainless storage cart, a commercial fridge, and a small grilling canopy. This summer I am going to add a roof and some nice patio furniture! Not sure this answers your question, but I love my daughter and her animals bring her so much for me grilling in front was an easy choice.
