Propane BBQ Safety Tips

Propane BBQ Safety Tips

Since we are in the middle of BBQ grilling season here are some rules to live by to stay safe when operating a propane grill. 

FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS: Whether it’s assembly, use, maintenance, cleaning, or storage, make your grill manufacturer’s instructions is your go-to resource for safe grilling.

POSITION THE GRILL IN A SAFE LOCATION:  Keep your grill outdoors and at least five feet from the house on a level surface that is clear of outdoor furniture, overhead trees, or other potential fire hazards. 

CHECK FOR LEAKS: Use a soapy water solution to check connections for leaks. Expanding bubbles indicate a leak. Follow this procedure every time you replace a cylinder.

FOLLOW PROPER LIGHTING PROCEDURES:  Follow the manufacturer’s lighting instructions, and with all grill models, keep the lid open and don’t lean over the grill when lighting it.

FOLLOW PROPER RELIGHTING PROCEDURES: If your flame goes out, turn off the gas and refer to your owner’s manual. At a minimum, with all grill models, keep the lid open and wait at least 15 minutes before relighting. 

ALWAYS BE PRESENT: Stay close and never leave your grill unattended.

I hope all of you are staying safe and healthy.  Right now, is a good time to fix any gas appliances that gave you trouble last winter.  During the winter season we get very busy so now would be a great time to get on the schedule. 

Yours truly,
