As the weather begins to turn for the better, there are few things that signal the sign of summer better than the first barbecue of the year. Although this is a joyous moment, that joy can turn to worry in a heartbeat. Here are some tips to ensure that you avoid any accidents and have a safe summer of grilling.
1. Make sure you grill outside and away from any structures. Avoid grilling under any umbrellas or awnings as they can quickly catch fire.
2. Provide your grill with a stable surface to stand on. Doing this ensures that your grill wont fall or be tipped over.
3. Check for propane leaks. Propane leaks are very dangerous and if undetected can lead to fire or explosion. The line can be checked by applying a solution consisting of soap and water to the valve where they connect. Then turn the tank on, if you see bubbles, there is a leak.
