Grilling-fact-sheetRemember that propane and charcoal BBQ grills should only be used outdoors, and that grills should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.

Make sure to keep children and pets away from the grill area, and keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills and in trays below the grill.

And never leave your grill unattended -- an unwanted fire can happen in an instant.
