Grilling Safety Tips

cook_outWarm weather and a holiday weekend means the smell of outdoor grills are filling your neighborhood. Follow these tips to make sure your recipe for a safe cookout is as unbeatable as your marinade recipe.

Prepare Your Grill And Choose A Safe Location

  • Clean your grill regularly. Grease buildup can cause a fire, and your guests will appreciate not eating a hamburger from a mobile health code violation.
  • Place your grill on a level surface at least ten feet away from any structure.
  • Keep flammable furniture and decorations away from the grill, including canopies, hanging baskets, pillows, etc.
  • Make sure all connections on a gas grill are tight and the hoses are in good condition.

Safety While Cooking

  • Use long-handled utensils on the grill to avoid grease splatters.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher nearby—and make sure you know how to use it before you need to use it!
  • Avoid oversized clothing and aprons that can catch fire.

Charcoal Grill?

  • Because charcoal produces carbon monoxide, make sure you use your grill in a well-ventilated area (and never indoors).
  • Never add lighter fluid directly to hot coals to get a fire going again as it can cause a flash fire.
  • Dispose of coals by soaking them in water to let them cool completely and place them in a metal container.

In Case Of Fire…

  • If it’s safe to do so, turn off the gas and put the cover on the grill.
  • Call 911. A fire can double in size every minute.
