Summer Grilling Tips

Grill the smart way…safely

Propane grills make outdoor cooking as easy as enjoyable. Keep the mood light and the good times rolling with these few propane grilling safety tips:

  • Follow the grill manufacturer’s instructions. Make the manual your go-to resource!
  • Position the grill in a safe location. Keep it level and clear of flammables (including overhangs and outdoor furniture).
  • Check for leaks. Check at the beginning of the season and every time you hook up a new tank. Be sure to watch the “If You Suspect a Gas Leak” video on this page.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s proper lighting procedures. Follow the manufacturer’s lighting instructions, and with all grill models, keep the lid open and don’t lean over the grill when lighting it.
  • Follow proper relighting procedures. Turn off the gas and refer to your owner’s manual. Keep the lid open and wait at least 15 minutes before relighting.
  • Stay with the grill. Never leave your grill unattended.
