Messing up a recipe isn’t the only risk you take when you decide to grill this summer. According to the National Fire Protection Association, approximately 10,200 home fires involve grills, hibachis or barbecues each year. And those weren’t the only causes of injury — 19,000 patients went to emergency rooms because of injuries involving grills each year, on average. Make sure to grill safely by keeping the grill far away from flammable objects, keeping your distance from the flame and cleaning your grill when necessary.
