A lot of people enjoy grilling in the nice weather, hosting family parties and celebrating this great country. However, it is so important to practice safety protocols to ensure an accident-free event.  For safe grilling, always follow your owner’s manual and you can practice some of these safety tips provided here.

Grilling Safety Tips

  • Always grill outdoors
  • Grills cannot be used on the balcony with an overhang.
  • The grill should be at least 10 feet away from the house or building.
  • Keep children and pets three feet away from the grill while in use.

Gas Grill Safety

  • Make sure the lid is open when it is ignited as the propane can build up inside and when ignited, and the lid may blow off.
  • If you smell gas, turn the grill off immediately and do not move the grill.
  • Always make sure you turn the burners off and close the propane cylinder when you’re done using it.
  • Don’t ever leave a burning grill unattended.

Charcoal Grill Safety

  • Only use charcoal starter fluid. Never use gas or kerosene to start a fire.
  • Charcoal can give off carbon monoxide which can be deadly so always use your grill outdoors.
  • Always allow the coals to cool for 48 hours before proper disposal. If you can’t wait until they cool then soak them in water before putting them in a metal container.
