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. 


Until next time,
