Grilling with friends and/or family during a gathering is one of the best ways to either welcome them to your house or just to simply bond with them. Along the way, we need to make sure that we will stay safe as well. According to Lynx Denver grill retailers, here are some of the things we can do to make sure we stay safe while grilling:
- Clean your grill regularly – grease and fat is a major source of flare ups as it adds more fuel to the fire. So never allow grease and fat to build up on your grill.
- Check for gas leaks by making a solution of half liquid dish soap and half water and using it on your grill. Rub this solution on the hoses and connections. Then turn the gas on, and leave the grill lid open. If large bubbles form, that means that the hoses have tiny holes or that the connections are not tight enough. Doing this can ensure no gas is leaking from your gas grill.
- Keep your grill at least 10 feet away from your house – the farther, the better. This also includes partitions attached to your house like porch and garage. You should not use your grill underneath the wooden overhangs, as the fire could flare up and immediately spread to the structure above.
