BBQ Tips

  • All barbeque grills must only be used outdoors — using grills indoors or in enclosed spaces is not only a fire hazard, but it exposes occupants to toxic gasses and potential asphyxiation. 
  • Always position the grill well away from combustible objects — buildings, fences, deck railings and landscaping can easily and quickly ignite.
  • Get your grill cleaned and serviced. Check all propane tanks and lines for leaks and damage.
  • Never leave a lit grill unattended.
  • Always use long handled grilling utensils and heat resistant oven mitts to avoid exposure burns from heat and flames.
  • Periodically remove grease build-up in catch trays to prevent it from igniting.
  • Keep a garden hose nearby, connected and ready for use in case of a fire.
