Four Tips for Safe grilling

Summer is in full swing, and propane grills everywhere are being put to work! Whether you prefer the classic hamburgers and hot dogs or like mixing them with grilled veggies or pizza, grilling is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while relaxing with family and friends. Following safe propane grilling practices is essential to enjoy your meal without any issues.

  1. Position the grill correctly. The grill should be placed on a flat surface to ensure it does not tip over. Grills should be located at least 10 feet away from your home or other structures, like a deck railing, to reduce the fire risk. Combustible items should also be removed from the grilling area.
  • Use proper lighting procedures. The first step in lighting a grill is to open the lid and turn on the tank or switching on your quick connect. Turn on one of the burners and use the ignition key to light the grill. Next, turn on the remaining burners and let the grill burn for about five to ten minutes to burn off any food from the previous meal.
  • Be present while cooking. Stay close to the grill and pay attention while you are cooking. It’s also important to always keep an eye on the grill as you cook, making sure that the heat and flames are under control at all times.  
  • Store safely. Before prepping for storage, ensure your grill has fully cooled down before moving or covering. If using a quick connect line to your propane supply, simply disconnect the line and move the grill to storage. If using a 20# cylinder, always store outdoors.

Propane grills are an excellent option for summer grilling. With an install by Holtzman you will never run out of gas unexpectedly, and you can always get your propane cylinder refilled by a Holtzman team member at your local Fireplace Store!
