Grilling has become one of my favorite ways to cook the various dinners I have throughout the week. The weather is perfect, the smell is amazing and not to mention the added flavor it creates. But, one thing I’m always worried about is somehow when I go to start the grill, it will blow up in my face. That’s why I’ve decided to share some of the best grilling safety tips I could find. Did I forget to mention the awesome FREEBIE I have too? Check it all out below!
5 Grilling Safety Tips
- Grills should be stored and used at least 10 feet away from your home. Also, avoid carports, garages, decorations, and overhangs.
- Clean your grill regularly because grease could fuel a fire.
- Check for gas leaks.
- Keep a fire extinguisher nearby and know how to use it just in case.
- Turn on the grill with the lid open. If it is closed, gas can build up and upon ignition, the lid can lift up releasing a fireball.
