There are quite a few things that we love about grills: they allow you to turn the outdoors into your very own kitchen, not to mention that add an irresistible smoky flavor to everything you cook.
As with any cooking instrument, when using your outdoor grill, you need to follow safety protocol to protect yourself and your loved ones from accidents and injury. Here are some safety tips for grilling from ABC News:

  • When positioning your grill, you want to make sure to keep it at least 10 feet away from any structures, including your home, carport, or shed. It’s also important to keep your grill a safe distance from any brush or overhanging trees as well.
  • Keeping your grill clean is important for multiple reasons. Not only does it help prevent grilling accidents, it also keeps your grill more sanitary for cooking.
  • Along with regularly cleaning your grill, you also want to take care of your propane tank. Have it replaced immediately if it shows any damage such as holes or rust.
  • It’s also a great idea to keep a spray bottle of water and a fire extinguisher nearby whenever you are using your grill.
