Barbecuing Safety Tips

  • Ensure your barbecue is at least ten meters from your house and that there are not any trees or shrubs in the way. Inspect your equipment for cracks and damages in between uses.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher or garden hose nearby when barbecuing. Avoid cooking on surfaces that can easily catch fire, such as decks and balconies.
  • Do not wear lose-fitting or beach-like clothing when using the barbecue. While going shirtless may entertain guests, you are putting your own safety at risk.
  • Turn the gas or propane off immediately after the food is cooked. Do not deliver the food to the table with the barbecue still lit.

Our grill is about 15 feet (is that more or less tha 10 meters??) from the house, on the ground in the yard, DH only ever wears regular jeans and t-shirt, ans is very adament about shutting the gas off right away, he doesnt want to waste any gas so it lasts longer.  So looks like we're good.
