Top 5 Grilling Safety Tips for Memorial Day


Top 5 Grilling Safety Tips for Memorial Day

The unofficial start to the summer season is upon us, Memorial Day weekend. Many will celebrate by

dusting off the grills, hosing off the picnic tables and declaring that cookout season has begun. Blossman

Gas has five safety tips to prepare your grill for the holiday weekend.

 Follow the Manufacturer’s Instructions – Whether it’s assembly, maintenance, or cleaning,

keep your grill manufacturer’s instructions close-by for any questions involving your grill. Keep

the top open when starting a propane grill, and don’t close it until you are sure the grill has

lighted.

 Check for Leaks - Before connecting the cylinder to a propane gas grill burner for the first time,

use a leak-detection solution (a 50/50 mixture of water and liquid soap) to check connections

for leaks. Expanding bubbles indicate a leak. Follow this procedure every time you replace a

cylinder.

 Use Appropriate Relighting Procedures – If your flame goes out, turn off the gas and refer to

your owner’s manual. At a minimum, with all grill models, keep the lid open and wait at least 15

minutes before relighting.

 Stay Attentive - Stay close and never leave your grill unattended.

 Shut it Down - When not in use, grill burner controls should be turned off and the cylinder valve

closed.
