You know you love barbecue meals from the grill if you’re grilling in triple digit heat. If it’s that hot where you are, stay inside (or go somewhere cool) and drink lots of water.
Safety Grilling Tips
Other than the first two tips to stay cool and drink water, there are other good tips you need to know for safe grilling. Grilling accidents do happen so I’ve visited websites that have great tips on safety that I want to share with you.

Follow safety tips at all times when you’re grilling. If you have a propane grill, follow the manufacturer’s directions. I like what dish.allrecipes.com says: “Shut off the gas valve when you’re done grilling. Let the coals cool completely….Never dump hot coals into the trash.”
Safety is the most important thing to remember when grilling. Whether you’ve grilled hamburgers and ribeyes for years or just purchased your first grill, know and follow outdoor safety tips. Then fire up the grill and enjoy cooking grilled hamburgers and delicious charcoal-grilled ribeyes with your family and friends.
