Protect Your Grill - Protect Your Home
Setting up your grill too close to anything flammable puts you and your home in danger. In fact, your grill should be no closer than 10 feet away from your home, flammable materials and other structures. Clear away dead leaves and other yard debris, that could interfere with your fall grilling enjoyment, from around your grill.
Always use your grill in a location where it’s protected from wind and other elements, but never in a closed area like an enclosed patio, porch or garage, even with the garage door open. Instead, position the grill at a 90-degree angle to the wind to keep the flames from blowing out. Not only is it a potential fire hazard to bring your grill inside a structure, gas grills produce carbon monoxide, which can be deadly.
If you’re skilled in construction, you can build a designated grilling zone for your grill or design a modular or built-in outdoor kitchen you can use throughout the year.
