Here are some tips on using your grill safely:

— Always read the owner’s manual before using a new gas or charcoal grill.

— Do not lean over a barbecue grill when igniting.

— When lighting a gas grill, the lid should always be open.

— Gas or charcoals grills should NEVER be used indoors; they are outdoor cooking appliances.

— Every time a refilled propane tank is reconnected to the barbecue, the hose connection should be checked for leaks.

— Always use heat-resistant barbecue mitts or gloves and long-handled tools.

— When done cooking, cover the charcoal grill and close all vents. Turn a gas grill off at the burners and the gas source.
