Tips for Outdoor Cooking


  • Use your grill only in well-ventilated areas — never inside a garage or on a covered patio. Your grill should also be placed away from any low-hanging tree branches.
  • Make sure the grill is clean, in order to prevent flare-ups. Also, check hoses for kinks or any deterioration.
  • Keep the cover open until you are sure the grill is lit — even if you have an electronic ignition.
  • When you’re finished, make sure to turn off the burner control and close the
    cylinder valve.
  • Propane cylinders should always be kept in an upright (vertical) position when
    stored or transported.
  • When refilling or replacing your tank, transport it in a well-ventilated or air-
    conditioned area
    of your vehicle — not the trunk — and bring it home immediately.
  • When taking your tank to be refilled, check for dents, rust or leaks.
  • Always store propane cylinders outdoors — not in a garage or shed.
