Grilling
Safety
There's nothing like outdoor grilling. It's one of the most popular
ways to cook food. But, a grill placed too close to anything that can
burn is a fire hazard. They can be very hot, causing burn injuries.
Follow these simple tips and you will be on the way to safe grilling.
SAFETY TIPS
KKK Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be
used outdoors.
KKK The grill should be placed well away from the
home, deck railings and out from under eaves and
overhanging branches.
KKK Keep children and pets at least three feet away
from the grill area.
KKK Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat
buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.
KKK Never leave your grill unattended.
KKK Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before
lighting it.
CHARCOAL GRILLS
KKK There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to
use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start
the charcoal using newspaper as a fuel.
KKK If you use a starter fluid, use only charcoal starter
fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other
flammable liquids to the fire.
KKK Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and
away from heat sources.
KKK There are also electric charcoal starters, which do
not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for
outdoor use.
KKK When you are finished grilling, let the coals
completely cool before disposing in a metal container.

Propane Grills
Check the gas tank hose for leaks
before using it for the first time each
year. Apply a light soap and water
solution to the hose. A propane leak will
release bubbles. If your grill has a gas
leak, by smell or the soapy bubble test,
and there is no flame, turn off both the
gas tank and the grill. If the leak stops,
get the grill serviced by a professional
before using it again. If the leak does
not stop, call the fire department. If you
smell gas while cooking, immediately
get away from the grill and call the
fire department. Do not move the grill.
If the flame goes out, turn the grill and
gas off and wait at least 5 minutes
before re-lighting it.
