Thanksgiving Day is one of our most important celebrations, but did you know that it’s also the leading day for home cooking fires? […]
According to the National Fire Protection Association, an estimated 8,800 home fires are started by grilling each year. Moreover, almost half of all injuries involving grills are caused by thermal burns. That’s why learning grilling safety tips is crucial in keeping everyone safe during the BBQ.
To prevent accidents when grilling, you should place the grill 10 feet away from structures and keep the grill grease-free. Additionally, check for gas leaks regularly and always keep water or a fire extinguisher nearby. You should never turn on the gas with the lid closed, leave the grill unattended or cook too much food at once. Learn more grilling safety tips below.
