For safety purposes always put a vent in the back of your outdoor BBQ structures. Every gas line eventually leaks. Including a vent will allow the gas to escape. If not the gas will sit in the grill until someone comes to turn it on and everyone knows what happens when uncontrolled gas and fire meet. A subtle vent in the back of the grill will allow excess gas in case of a leak to escape into the yard rather than sit in the confined space of the grill waiting for you to blow it up by simply lighting up the grill. Be safe and make sure you have some sort of vent in your outdoor BBQ structure. In other words dont blow up your house.
