Propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors.

The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.

Never leave your grill unattended.

Always make sure your gas grill lid is open before lighting it.

If you use starter fluid, use only charcoal starter fluid. Never add charcoal fluid or any other flammable liquids to the fire.

Keep charcoal fluid out of the reach of children and away from heat sources.

When you are finished grilling, let the coals completely cool before disposing in an metal container.

There are several ways to get the charcoal ready to use. Charcoal chimney starters allow you to start charcoal using newspaper as a fuel.

There are also electric charcoal starters, which do not use fire. Be sure to use an extension cord for outdoor use.
