Tennessee is known for a lot of great things. Of all of them, one of the best is its’ finger-licking barbecue. Chances are good that if you’re reading this, you’re already a pro when it comes to handling a grill. But whether you’re experienced or you just bought your first grill, there are some things to keep in mind in order to stay safe while you’re grilling.
First, it’s a good idea to use your grill in a wide-open space, with plenty of ventilation. The last thing you want is to expose yourself to carbon monoxide that comes from charcoal smoke. And of course, radiant heat from a grill can do some terrible things to things like the siding on your home if it’s too close to the grill.
Second, it’s important to keep your grill in good condition. That means cleaning it regularly, covering it, and double-checking any parts or connections if you own a propane grill.
Hopefully, these simple reminders will help you to stay safe while grilling.
