Outdoor Grill Safety 101
Who can resist a juicy hamburger straight from the grill? Check out the following tips to enjoy safe grilling:
- Keep flammable materials, such as leaves and other debris, away from the grill. Don't leave a grill unattended. Keep children and pets away from cooking areas.
- Use only lighter fluid specifically made for starting charcoal fires. Don't add starter fluid of any kind after charcoals are lit.
- Always light a gas grill with the lid open. After cooking, shut off the tank first, then the burners.
- Use outdoor grills where they belong-outdoors. Charcoal fires give off carbon monoxide, which can reach toxic levels in an enclosed space.
- Keep a fire extinguisher near. Use baking soda to handle small grease fires. If it's safe to get near the grill, close it to stifle the flames.
- Georgia law does not permit grilling on apartment balconies. Check to see if your complex has a separate grilling area.
