Blossman Gas & Appliance has five top Safety Tips to prepare your grill for summer grilling to help you enjoy a safe and happy grilling season.

5 Tips for Grilling Safety

  1. Always keep the top open when lighting a grill until you are sure that it is lit.
  2. Never pour an accelerant such as lighter fluid or gasoline on the grill.
  3. Never use matches or lighters to check for leaks.
  4. When finished grilling, turn off the burner controls and close the cylinder valve.
  5. Make sure the grill is clean. When finished grilling and the grill is turned off but hot, clean off the grates. Once the grill cools, clean out the collection tray.
