May is National BBQ Month

Carney Insurance Services

Summer is in the air! Can you smell it? Can you also smell the other scents of summer?  Like BBQ cooking on the grill? The crackle of the coals and fire cooking the tender meat? May is National BBQ Month, and what better way to bring on the summer fun than enjoying a cook out.

Before firing up your gas or charcoal grill, keep in mind a few grilling safety tips from the NFPA:

  • Only use the grill outside.
  • Place the grill well away from the home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets away from the grill area.
  • Clean your grill by removing grease or fat buildup, including the trays below the grill.
  • Never leave your grill unattended.

Having a cook out is a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer with friends and family. May your National BBQ Month start with some delicious BBQ on the grill.  In addition, always remember safety first!
