Grill Safety

There is something very satisfying about grilling out on your own deck. Of course, without the proper safety precautions, you could risk major damage to your deck and home. Before enjoying a backyard barbecue, make sure that your grill is on a level surface and is a safe distance away from railings, eaves, branches, and any other flammable material. Also, be attentive to the wind and any sparks that it might be blowing onto your deck. Finally, never ignite a gas grill with the lid closed: propane may have accumulated inside the grill, and ignition could blow the lid off.
