BEFORE YOU GRILL
- Read your grill manufacturer’s instructions and call their help line if you have questions.
- Position your grill in an open area away from buildings and high traffic areas.
- Check to make sure all parts of your grill are in place and the grill is stable.
- Before lighting the grill, apply non-stick spray to the grates. The protective spray cuts down on clean-up time.
- Wear clothes that do not have hanging shirt tails, frills or aprons.
- Never leave a grill unattended once lit.
- Use utensils with long handles to avoid burns.
- Use baking soda to control a grease fire and have a fire extinguisher handy. If you don’t have a commercial extinguisher, keep a bucket of sand or a garden hose nearby.
- Never attempt to move a hot grill. It’s easy to stumble or drop it and serious burns could result.
After you Grill
- Turn the grill burners and lp grill cylinder to the off position.
- Use a wire Brush to scrub away buildup on the grates once the grill has cooled.
- To clean the grate, remove the cooled grate and squirt grease-cutting dishwashing detergent on it. Scrub with an abrasive brush or pad, then rinse. Be prepared to repeat this several times.
- Never store or place a propane cylinder indoors or in an enclosed area.
- Never expose or place a propane cylinder in an area of excessive heat (above 120 degrees).
- Never store or place a spare cylinder under or near a barbeque grill.
- Never smoke or use electrical tools in the area while handling or transporting cylinders.
- Always transport and store cylinders in the upright position.
- Keep your cylinder valve closed when not in use.
- Never keep filled cylinder in a hot vehicle or transport it in a closed trunk.
- Always move your grill away from your house or combustible material before lighting.
