How to Have a Safe BBQ

     

CHOOSING A BARBECUE

There are many different types of barbecue on the market. Whichever one you choose, keep safety in mind.

Besides the normal charcoal models, you can also purchase calor gas ones and do-it-yourself kits. Make sure your barbecue is sturdy as barbecues become deceptively hot and many cheaper models are extremely unstable.

 

BARBECUE POSITION

Position the barbecue well away from fences and trees.

Situated in a position where the barbecue can be knocked over.

 

YOUR NEIGHBOURS

Site the barbecue away from their homes.

Do not disturb them with smoke (You can always invite them!)

 

 

 

FOOD PREPARATION AND COOKING

Keep all utensils and plates for cooked foods separate from those used for uncooked food.

All meat should be cooked thoroughly but portions of chicken and other poultry need particular care.

Food should not be left in the sunshine.

Only barbecues with lids are suitable for cooking joints and whole chickens. Other types will not cook the meat thoroughly.

Use a meat thermometer to check that the meat is cooked.

 

SAFETY POINTS

To minimise accidents, ensure children are under constant supervision and never leave the barbecue unattended.

Ensure suitable fire fighting equipment is close at hand, e.g. garden hose/bucket of sand.

Never put hot ashes directly into a dustbin. Wait until they have cooled down.

 

LIGHTING UP

Always use the correct materials and fuels for lighting the barbecue and observe the manufacturer's instructions.

Never pour lighter fuel onto hot coals even if they appear to have gone out.

Keep combustible materials and matches away from the barbecue.
