The summer months are packed with occasions to grill, from holiday weekends to birthday bashes to vacations at the beach! The important thing to remember is to take precautions with your grilling, and avoid the simple barbeque blunders.

Beth Allen of Hip Chicks provided some great tips for grill safety! Here are a few of them:

– Make sure to turn the propane tank off after use

– Do not store extra propane tanks in your house, garage, or shed

– Keep your furry friends away from the propane tank. As they say, “curiosity killed the cat”!

Never put charcoal bricks on a gas grill!
