Careless Grilling Can Cook Up Trouble!
• Be sure your grill is sturdy and stable, especially if it stands on legs. Take special care on a combustible surface.
• Place your grill so that sparks and smoke won't fly toward buildings, furniture or people.
• Prevent burns and protect your clothing with a heavy apron and potholder-type gloves.
• Use only enough charcoal to last for the time it is needed.
• Properly attach your ash catcher when using a kettle grill.
• Douse the coals thoroughly with water after grilling.
• Transport, store and use propane gas cylinders in an upright position only

ALWAYS:
DON'T:
• Barbecue in a confined space; if possible, don't grill on balconies and decks of apartments and condominiums.
• Use gasoline, kerosene, alcohol or a cigarette lighter to start a fire.
• Add more starter fluid to an existing fire.
• Leave a grill unattended once the coals are lit.
• Move outdoor barbecues indoors. Smoldering charcoal can build up lethal concentrations of carbon monoxide.
• Discard used briquettes in a cardboard carton or any other combustible container.
