Summertime…. the perfect time for barbequing. But, it is necessary to know the dangers of barbequing with a propane grill, so here are some tips on how to practice safe barbequing.

First of all, keeping the actual propane tank in an open environment and away from indoors in case of a leak will protect your house and your family. Secondly, checking for any leakage before refueling an empty tank will prevent further damage to the tank and to your house.

When connecting the grill to the tank, make sure that all the connections are secure and no gaps are formed, to prevent leakage of the gas. The time to especially make sure of this is the start of the barbeque season when the grill hasn’t been used for a while.

When you are done with the grilling, make sure to turn off the gas first, then turn off the controls, and that way the grill will use up any gas leftover in the lines. These are just a few simple things that can lead to preventive maintenance and less heartache in the future.
