As Canadians embrace warmer weather, RSA Canada has released its top five ways to enjoy safer gas and nongas barbecuing. Here’s the second of the two lists; the first one ran on Thursday.
Gas barbecue safety 1. Make sure the lid is open to prevent gas build up when lighting the barbecue. 2. Never ignite the grill with a match or cigarette lighter - only use the built-in electronic igniters or other devices as provided or recommended by the manufacturer. 3. Before each use check for leaks by applying soap and water to all connections, hoses and the cylinder head. If bubbles form, you have a leak and must tighten the connections or replace the defective part. 4. When storing, make sure the tank and the grill are both turned off. 5. Never store a gas grill indoors with the tank attached.
