BBQ Safety Tips You Should Know



According to a recent study, the average homeowner pays more attention to kitchen stove safety than they do BBQ safety. But, the fact is, a BBQ mishap can be just as devastating. So, it pays to know the latest safety tips.


• Keep BBQs at least 8 feet away from your house.


• Check for venture tube blockages regularly. (Spiders are notorious for spinning webs in there.)


• Clean the grill frequently to prevent flare ups. A grease fire on the grill can continue burning even after you’ve turned the BBQ off.


• Don’t position your BBQ close to foliage, such as under a tree or next to shrubs.


• Never BBQ in an enclosed area, such as a garage, even if the space is well ventilated.


• Avoid leaving the grill unattended, especially when cooking greasy foods such as sausages, beef burgers or steaks. 

• Do not let children BBQ.


Finally, make sure your BBQ is turned completely off after use. It’s a good idea to double-check this when making the rounds and locking up your home for the night.


Experts say you should treat a BBQ as you would a camp fire — with care
