Grills should be placed at least fifteen (15) feet from any home, building, or combustibles to ensure adequate air circulation.

Charcoal must be kept dry. Wet charcoal can spontaneously ignite.

Spare propane bottles should be stored outside away from the home. A backyard shed is a good place.

Keep children and pets away from the grill. Grills continue to give off heat long after cooking has stopped.

Never place hot ashes in paper or plastic bags or containers. Only use metal containers.

Use Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approved electrical starters in place of lighter fluid.

Never use a charcoal or grill on apartment or condominium balconies or wooden decks. This practice is considered unsafe and is not recommended.
