Please remember these important safety tips when using grills.
- Only use a grill outside and keep it at least 3 feet from siding, deck rails and eaves.- Clean the grill after each use- Keep a 3-foot safe zone around the grill.- Place cooled coals in a metal can with a lid.- Stay with a grill when it is in use.
