If you’ve ever used charcoal BBQ grills, then you know how much fun it can be to cook on. But if you aren’t careful, it can also be dangerous. Grills have the potential to be dangerous if used carelessly, so here are some tips for keeping everyone safe:
1. Never use a charcoal grill indoors, even in a fireplace.
Charcoal grills are designed to be used outdoors and should not be used indoors. The heat from their flames can damage your home’s carpets, curtains and other furniture, so it’s best to keep them outside on the deck or patio where they’ll get good airflow while they cook.
2. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area at all times.
Children are curious, so keeping them safe by keeping them at a distance is important. If you have pets, keep them in the house or in a secure area. A child or pet could be hurt by falling into the fire or getting burned by the flame if they happen to get too close to your fire grill while they are in use.
3. Never use gasoline, kerosene, or any other flammable liquid to start or accelerate a charcoal fire.
Don’t use lighter fluid made of gasoline, kerosene, or other inflammable liquids to start your charcoal BBQ grill. It’s not only dangerous (it could leak and cause an explosion), but also won’t work on your barbecue grill at all! Instead, you should use wood pellets. Even if you are going to use a starter fluid, ensure that you do not put in over the coals after they have been lit.
4. Never use water to put out the fire.
When using fire grills, it’s important to keep them away from buildings and other combustible materials that could catch fire. If you are new to the world of charcoal grilling, you may think of putting out the fire using water. But this practice damages your grill just as much as it makes the clean-up difficult. Instead, use a fire extinguisher or let the coals cool down naturally (but keep them away from any inflammable material.)
5. Don’t use dirty BBQ grills as it is both unhygienic and dangerous.
If you’re cooking on a charcoal grill, there are a few things you can do to keep your food from getting stuck to the grate or tray. First of all, remove grease and fat buildup from the grates, trays and burners using a grill brush. Use paper towels to wipe down all surfaces of your grill in order to get rid of any loose bits of food that may fall into corners or crevices while they are still hot. Finally, use metal scrapers (or even some sandpaper) to scrape off any remaining gunk from these areas after they have cooled down.
BBQ grills have the potential to be dangerous if used carelessly. They can cause burns and damage to property, so it’s important that you follow these safety precautions to keep your grill in good condition.
