Safety Tips for Your Next BBQ

Spring is here, and BBQ season is around the corner.  You really don’t need an excuse to get outdoors and enjoy friends, family and good food.  A good BBQ recipe calls for a hot grill and perfectly seasoned meat and veggies, but there are some BBQ safety tips to consider when spending time outdoors with a hot grill in the heat of the summer. 

Someone who has knowledge of fire safety, gas safety or charcoal safety needs to be in charge of the grilling.  That one person should have a fire extinguisher available, and should know how to control a fire, should one arise.  Food safety is important, as bacteria can grow on any type of food.  All food should be kept cool until it is time to either eat it or grill it.  Once it is cooked, it needs to be served or refrigerated.
