Prep Your BBQ for Summer Fun

Grilling can be a lot of fun, and when you are in Plano, Texas, it is important to do so safely. There are several things that you need to know when grilling, and this will protect your home more effectively.

Below are five tips that we have compiled to help you grill in a safer way.

Clean the Grill. Clean the grill on a regular basis. You want to get all dried food, grease, and other things off of the grill to ensure that you don’t experience any kind of flare up.

Check the Tank. If you are using a gas grill, it needs to be checked every so often for leaks as well as for any kind of rust. If the tank is damaged in any way, you will want to get a new one.

Move the Grill. Move the grill at least 20 feet away from the home. You also don’t want to use it under any kind of awning or enclosure.

Keep a Spray Bottle Nearby. Keep a spray bottle filled with water nearby so that you can quickly put out any of the large flare-ups at the grill.

Always Stay Close. You will always want to be close to the grill so that you can get to a problem quickly. It leaves the grill unattended and you go inside, a fire could break out, and you wouldn’t know about it until it is too late.

Grilling is always a lot of fun and you can cook a lot of different foods, but you want to be sure that you are doing so safely as a way of keeping your home well protected.
