Grill In Utah The Safe Way

Grilling in Sandy, Utah can be a lot of fun. Whether you are grilling up food for the family or for the whole neighborhood, you want to do everything safely. This will keep you safe and free from injuries and keep your home a lot safer, too.

Any time you grill, it’s important to focus on where you are setting up the grill. Be sure to choose a place where the smoke has a place to go – away from the home. Fire departments recommend at least 20 feet from the structure and never in an enclosed area, such as a screened patio.

Always work with a clean grill. It can be helpful to invest in a wire brush so you can get all of the burnt food and grease off of the racks. You also want to empty any drippings frequently so you don’t encounter a fire or any kind of flare-ups.

If you are working with gas, check the tank for leaks periodically. If you are working with charcoal, be safe about how you light the briquettes.

Keep a fire extinguisher close to you – and be sure you know how to work it. This way if a fire does start, you can put it out quickly and effectively.

It is also important to stay by the grill at all times, never leaving it unattended.

Grilling is one of the best ways to cook outdoors, but it has to be done safely. Following a few basic tips will help you to enjoy your time at the grill more, having peace of mind that you and your home is safe.
