12 Steps To Fun & Safe Grilling Anytime Of The Year.

Many people enjoy their outdoor grills well into the fall. We’ve even heard of folks in northern climes who keep their grills going all winter. But there’s always a risk of fire with grills, so follow these safe grilling tips.


  1. Only grill outdoors. Never move a grill to a screened porch or garage, even if it’s raining cats and dogs.
  2. Place grill on a flat, non-flammable surface, such as a driveway or section of lawn away from buildings and flammable items.
  3. Position grill at least 15 feet away from home, railings, and flammable items, not under eaves or branches.
  4. Clean grate with a sponge and dishwashing soap and remove all grease and rust with a wire brush.
  5. For gas grills, put a light soap and water solution on the propane tank hose and watch for bubbles, indicating a leak. If there is one, have a professional service it.


  1. Never use gasoline, alcohol, or kerosene to light your charcoal.
  2. Once coals are lit, never add lighter fluid or other flammable liquid.
  3. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill.
  4. Never leave a charcoal or gas grill unattended.
  5. When grilling, if you smell gas, immediately move away from the grill and call the fire department.


  1. Tightly close grill lid and vents.
  2. Do not remove coals or move the grill for at least 48 hours.
