Accidental fires can happen quicker than you might think. Just look at the poor guy pictured! Follow these basic safety tips to ensure a happy and safe cookout every time. Before you Barbecue
•Before using your BBQ grill, a thorough check for cracks, leaks, or brittle parts should be done.
•Clean out the tubes that lead into the burner and any loose dirt.
•Keep the grill three (3) feet away from anything you don't want to lose in the event of an accident (people, pets, walls, trees, garbage etc.).
•Use your grill on a large flat surface that cannot burn (i.e. concrete or asphalt). Store it on a flat surface as well when not in use.
•Don't use grills in any enclosed space (garage, porch, deck, or balcony) or on top of anything that can catch on fire.
•Keep children away from fires and grills AT ALL TIMES. Try setting up a "safety zone" around the grilling and instruct children to stay outside that zone.
•Have a working fire extinguisher close by. If not, you should have a garden hose attached to a water supply, or at least 16-quarts of water close by in case of a fire.While you Barbecue
