Always place grills on a flat, clean surface away from any potentially flammable debris such as rubbish bins or mulch. The same goes for low-lying trees and hedges. Make sure there are no low-hanging branches in the vicinity of your BBQ.
Is it safe to grill on patio?
Yes, you can. Though it is safe to grill inside your patio, garage, awning, porch, or balcony, it’s always best to only use the grill outside in an open area where nobody can be harmed. This method will reduce the risk of any accidents and allow proper ventilation.
Is it safe to grill in the garage?
Don’t do it. Never mind the fire risk from rising sparks — the charcoal and gas grills manufactured for use on your patio produce large amounts of carbon monoxide — easily more than lethal amounts. Allowing that to collect in your garage or under the eaves into your attic can be fatal.

- Place one or two 10-pound sandbags evenly over the grill’s crossbars to anchor it.
- Tie the grill to a nearby structure that’s anchored, such as a deck or porch.
