Get Your Home Ready For Summer Day 9: Get out the Grill

Posted by   + Show Post

Have you gotten out your grill yet? With summer just around the corner and the Fourth of July coming up, it's time to fire up your grill. If you don't have one, now might be the time to shop! There are quite a few sales happening for Father's Day.

  • Check to be sure your grill is on level ground.
  • Talk to your kids about grill safety.
  • If you have a gas grill, it's very important to do a leak check.
  • Be sure all the knobs are working and no parts have come loose or fallen off.
  • Get proper grilling tools to avoid burning yourself.
  • Give the grill a good cleaning before its first use.

Is your grill ready to fire up? How often do you grill?

Thanks for the info, but our basement is very well ventilated so there are no worries or we wouldn't do =)

Quoting steelcrazy:

You really should reconsider doing that.  Both gas and charcoal grills are NOT safe to use indoors due to them letting of carbon monoxide.  You could kill your family by doing this.  They need to be used outdoors where there is proper ventilation.  Instead, you may want to consider purchasing an electric indoor grill.

I live in PA & we grill all year long too! We just pull the grill into the middle of the basement in the winter time- I LOVE certain foods on the grill & don't want to have to wait til summer sometimes lol

Quoting steelcrazy:

We purchased a new grill back in March, so it is good to go.  We grill pretty often all year long, which is odd for people to do here in PA.  I've been known to be grilling steaks in a blizzard.

We grill all year long-more in the cooler months. Too hot in summer.
