Summer BBQ Safety Tips

Summertime signals many of us to fire up the BBQ grill and cook delicious food outdoors. 

Nothing is better than firing up the grill during a warm summer day and cooking some delicious BBQ food. Add in some friends and a cold one in your hand, and you’ve got the perfect summer day. But as fun as cooking on the grill can be, there always lies the threat of a fire-related disaster. To reduce your risk of fire, take these summer BBQ safety tips into consideration.

  1. Keep Your Grill 10 Feet Away – Keep your grill at least ten feet away from your home. This includes your home structures like porches, garages, wooden overhangs and other flammable structures.
  2. Check for Gas Leaks – Before you light up your grill, make sure that there are no gas leaks coming from the hoses. Make a watery/soapy solution and cover the hoses. Turn on the gas and if you see little bubbles, it indicates there is a leak.
  3. Clean the Grill Regularly – If you allow the grease and oil from the meats and vegetables to build up, you are providing additional fuel to the fire. Grease is a major source of flare-ups.
  4. Don’t Ignite with a Closed Lid – If you turn on the gas with a closed lid, you allow the pressure inside of the grill to build up. When you light it with the lid closed, the difference in pressure can lead to a giant fireball exploding in your face.
  5. Don’t Use a Grill Indoors – Fires indoors are never a safe idea. In addition to the obvious fire hazard, fires produce carbon monoxide: a toxic gas which is both invisible and odorless.

To protect your home against the dangers of barbequing, you need the right homeowners insurance in Banning. The right insurance coverage shouldn’t be a task you have to worry about. Contact Little & Sons Insurance Services.
