You can enjoy grilling this summer by making sure to stay safe. Take time to check out your grilling tools such as inspecting the propane tank and barbecue and ensure that all parts of the burners are rust-free, free from dirt, cobwebs and blockages. Find out if the hose is in good condition and watch out for signs of loose, damage or crack connections. Remember that a cracked hose could sent out propane and when lighted could result into a flame several feet away.

Always keep the grill clean by removing grease and fat buildup from the grills and the trays below. Refrain from throwing water on grease fire because this could cause fire to grow which could create serious burns. Use a 50/50 mixture of soap and liquid to check the cylinder hoses and connections. Rising bubbles when valve is turned may indicate a leak. Make certain to repair hose and tighten connections until no more bubbles surface.

Replace parts that you are not certain immediately. Grill parts can be purchased at most hardware stores. Keep children and pets at least one meter away from the grill all the time. Roll up sleeves or wear tight-fitting sleeves when grilling. Do not forget to keep the lid open when you light the grill.
