Home barbecue tips:

• Never BBQ inside, in a garage, on the roof or on a second story deck

• Never leave your grill unattended

• If you're using a charcoal grill, let the lighter fluid soak into the coals a few minutes before lighting them so that any vapors have time to evaporate. When you do light the coals, stand back

• Open the grill lid before you light it

• Don’t wear loose fitting clothing

• Make sure you use the grill 10 feet away from your house

• Have the BBQ close to a water source

• Don’t let raw meat sit out long without being chilled or cooked

• Always wash your hands before and after handling food

• Don’t over indulge in alcohol while barbecuing

• Let the grill cool down before you store or cover it

Always make sure that the barbecue is in a safe place, where children and pets won’t touch or bump into it.  Remember that the barbecue will still be hot even after you finish cooking, anyone contacting the barbecue could be burned. Make sure your home owner’s policy is up to date. Have fun be safe and eat well!
