Enhanced Safety For Your Summer BBQs

Grilling/BBQ Safety TipsImportant Safety Tips For Both Grill Masters & Novices

As you prepare to roll out the invitations to your summer barbecues, it is important that you think about ways in which you can enhance safety during your summer fun. We want you to man the grill without a worry in the world, which is why we have gathered a list of helpful guiding points for both grill masters and novices.

Grilling BBQ Safety Tips:

  • Whenever you buy a new grill, be sure to read the owner’s manual. While you may be inclined to overlook this extremely important chore, you cannot begin to understand the true capabilities of your grill until you know how it functions.
  • No matter what, your grill should only be used outdoors, even if it rains. Many homeowners will make the mistake of moving the party indoors if the weather poses a problem, but this should be avoided at all costs.
  • Even though your covered backyard patio may seem like the perfect place to master the grill, your BBQ should only be kept in well-ventilated areas. All combustibles need to be a safe distance away, including overhead combustibles.
  • Another important consideration when it comes to the placement of your grill is its stability. The last thing you want is a grill on unstable grounds to blow over in the wind and turn into a full blown backyard fire.
  • The clothing you wear while mastering the grill is also important, as you do not want your loose sleeves to get caught in the grill and catch on fire.
