Brush up on your barbecue tips for National Grilling Month.
Summer is here and it’s time to fire up the grill. Whether you’re hosting a barbecue or your summer diet consists of grilled foods, it’s important to brush up on how to use your grill safely. Check out these safe barbecue tips so that you’re well protected.
Keep the Grill Clean.
When it comes to barbecuing, ensure that you keep the grates as clean as possible. As you cook meats, fat and grease build up on the grill. This build up can be extremely flammable, and can lead to a disaster. Ensure that you scrub the grates clean before you use your barbecue, and ensure that you never drain any grease or oil down the sink.
Keep an Eye on the Grill.
When barbecuing, it’s important that you keep an eye on the grill. Ensure that there’s nothing flammable near the grill and that any kids and pets are kept far away from the barbecue.
Prepare Ahead of Time.
It’s important that your food is ready to go before you fire up the grill. That way you’re able to focus on grilling and less on prepping so that your food is cooked correctly and so that you can grill safely. Additionally, when preparing your food, ensure that you’re mindful of what you’re putting down the drain. Avoid putting any foods that may cause a blockage so that you can keep your home’s plumbing in good shape.
