Safety Tips

  • Propane and charcoal grills should only be used outdoors.
  • The grill should be placed well away from the house, deck railings, accessory structures, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets at least 3 feet away from the grill area.
  • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat build up from the grills and in the tray below the grills.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
  • Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting.
  • For more tips see the printable Grilling Safety Tips Sheet.pdf.
