Never use a BBQ indoors, on a balcony or roof terrace. This includes any products that are being sold as “balcony bbq’s”. They must not be used under any circumstances as they present a fire risk to you and your surrounding neighbours.
Never leave the BBQ unattended once lit or whilst cooling.
Keep children, pets and garden games away from the cooking area.
Position your BBQ in a large outdoor space, away from anything that may catch fire (trees, fences, rubbish etc). BBQs can easily get out of control and spread - keep a bucket of water, sand or garden hose nearby.
Always follow the safety instructions provided with your BBQ for safe use and storage.
Never use petrol or paraffin on a barbecue; use only recognised lighters or starter fuels on cold coals.
After use leave the BBQ and cooking utensils to cool before putting away.
