Winter grilling safety tips

Winter grilling safety tips

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – While the temperatures outside may be dipping again, you may feel inspired to pull out your grill this week.

During chilly months, it's important to remember that while you can grill in chilly weather, it's not the same as the summertime.

Here are a few tips to keep you safe:

  • Remember snow gloves are not heat resistant gloves
  • Don't grill in your garage or underneath a carport or awning
  • You should be at least two feet away from all combustible materials and in a well-ventilated area
  • One of the most important things to watch for is your propane tank. Check your connections first, make sure it's on or off, and check it that way

If you are not using your grill at all this season, keep it covered for protection from the weather.
