BBQ Safety Tips You Should Know

With weather getting colder some of you will be putting your barbeques away for the season, while others like to barbeque year round. 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.
