SAFE GRILLING TIPS

Don’t forget the most important ingredient to any grill-out: safety. Review the tips below for some safety advice.

 

Follow Instructions

FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS.

Whether it’s assembly, use, maintenance, cleaning, or storage, make your grill manufacturer’s instructions your go-to resource for safe grilling.

Position the Grill

POSITION THE GRILL IN A SAFE LOCATION.

Keep your grill outdoors and at least five feet from the house on a level surface that is clear of outdoor furniture, overhead trees, or other potential fire hazards.

Check for leaks

CHECK FOR LEAKS.

Use a soapy water solution to check connections for leaks. Expanding bubbles indicate a leak. Follow this procedure every time you replace a cylinder.

relighting

FOLLOW PROPER LIGHTING PROCEDURES.

Follow the manufacturer’s lighting instructions, and with all grill models, keep the lid open and don’t lean over the grill when lighting it.

Proper Lighting Technique

FOLLOW PROPER RELIGHTING PROCEDURES.

If your flame goes out, turn off the gas and refer to your owner’s manual. At a minimum, with all grill models, keep the lid open and wait at least 15 minutes before relighting.

Be Present

BE PRESENT.

Stay close and never leave your grill unattended.
