Grilling Safety Tips For Barbecue Season

Safety Precautions For Grilling Season

Barbecue season is amongst us which means it is time to refresh our memories of the vital grilling safety tips. While you may think that you only need to worry about which dishes you will be grilling up, you must also think about safety precautions. Keep these grilling safety tips in mind for your next BBQ:

  • If you have not used your grill in a while, be sure to give it a good cleaning and prepare it for grilling season as instructed in the owner’s manual.
  • Decorations are an important part of throwing a backyard party, but they can also be detrimental when it comes to safety. Keep the screamers and balloons away from the grilling area.
  • Your grill should be on leveled ground to ensure safety. Also, make sure that it is far away from any and all combustibles, including your roof.
  • If you use charcoal to grill, it is important that you soak all coals in water before disposing of them.
  • Most importantly, try to remain in charge of your party. Yes, you can enjoy yourself, but remain aware of all guests so that you can take any necessary precautions.
