Barbecue Safety

We hope you are looking forward to the forthcoming warm weather and you may be thinking of having a barbecue.

Please don’t forget to be safe though and consider the below safety tips:

General Safety

  • Make sure your barbecue is in good working order.
  • Ensure the barbecue is on a flat, non-combustible area, well away from a shed, trees or shrubs.
  • Do not use a barbecue in an enclosed area.
  • Do not use a barbecue on a balcony.
  • Keep children, garden games and pets well away from the cooking area.
  • Never leave the barbecue unattended.
  • Keep a bucket of water or sand nearby for emergencies.
  • Ensure the barbecue is cool before attempting to move it.


Charcoal Barbecues

  • Use only enough charcoal to cover the base to a depth of about 50mm (2 inches).
  • Only use recognised fire lighters or starter fuel and only on cold coals – use the minimum necessary and never use petrol.
  • Never put hot ashes straight into a dustbin or wheelie bin – they could melt the plastic and cause a fire.


Gas Barbecues

  • Make sure the tap is turned off before changing the gas cylinder.
  • Change cylinders outdoors if possible or in a well ventilated area.
  • If you suspect a leak to the cylinder or pipe work, brush soapy water around the joints and watch for bubbles – tighten to fix but do not over tighten.
  • After cooking, turn off the gas cylinder before turning off at the controls to ensure any residual gas in the pipe work is used up.


Once again enjoy the weekend with your friends and family and stay safe.
