What size BBQ are you going to have?
If it's one of those new monster BBQs with 6 burners, wok burner etc - I'd put it at A - more room.
A small 4 burner BBQ then B - but the glass might get a lot of fat splatter.
After 4 years - we're in!

Thanks. The problem is I DONT know where to put the BBQ!!! I am not really into BBQ, probably once in a month. I will probably get a small (4 burner) BBQ.

possibly 'storing' when not in use at point B but when in use have the flexibility to wheel it between the pier and point B. In that way the fat splatters will go out in the garden not on the brick walls and glass sliding door.

It is starting to make sense now, with the "storing" and "cleaning" ideas.
Could i put the gas bayonet at the far left of point A. In this case, i will roll the BBQ unit to the left end of the alfresco, so the fat will go to the garden? If not in use, the BBQ will just sit in point A.
How far is the gas tube/hose can be extended from the base (gas bayonet)?
Is it a good practice to disconnect the bbq from the bayonet each time after use? Or it doesnt matter?
Huge thanks for the replies..
PS: Mark, the sliding door open to both sides.

commodorenut - I thought A was along the brick wall? (I may very well have read the plan incorrectly)
I was just about to post the same question but then CN's post dissapeared. Good trick that.

Yeah I realised it was brick not glass, and went to edit but stuffed it....
How big is the area at point A?
It may be more convenient to leave it at A - it's more rotected from the wind & rain (so you can BBQ regardless of the weather) and if there's enough room to be at least 300mm away from the nearest glass, then the heat won't affect it (I'm guilty of breaking a kitchen window with BBQ heat....)
If the area at A is too small, then B would be the best bet.
If you leave the BBQ at A, then you'll find it may turn into a convenient outdoor storage table for all manner of cricket bats, tennis racquets, beer cans......

Put it half way between A and B.

The length of "point A" wall is 2 meter (the dimension of the alfresco is 3X5.3m).
If you have 2m of wall to locate it on, and back the BBQ up to, then I'd be looking to put it there.

I would look at it from a different perspective. I would place the bayonett as close to the corner between B&C as possible and have the back of the BBQ facing out (ie not backing against a wall). That way when it is in use all fumes, steam, smoke & grease should escape past the ceiling. If you put it at A I would expect you will end up with a dirty big mark on the ceiling above.
As long as you buy one with wheels on the one end you could always store it at A.

I absolutely concur with the previous post. My cousin has an alfresco and a BBQ under it in probably the equivalent of either point A or point B and their ceiling has a dirty great charcoal mark on the ceiling above the BBQ that everyone notices.
Only use your BBQ under the alfresco ceiling when it is raining.

We have a capped gas point going on the outside pole supporting the alfresco roof - I want to eat under my alfresco area not deal with fumes and smoke.

Make sure that your BBQ is rated for Natural Gas, and not a normal BBQ. If you dont you will need a new BBQ in 12-18 months.
Also, you may find that it is a requirement that the BBQ be FIXED to the house in order to have it connected to natural gas.

Seriously use a gas bottle.
Then you can put it wherever you want depending on prevailing conditions.
