Aside from baseball and apple pie, there are few things more all-American than barbecuing. But before firing up the grill, here are some helpful tips:
Start with a clean grill. Clean the grates after every use with a wire brush then condition them with cooking oil or spray to help prevent rust and prevent food from sticking.
Keep 2 ½-inch wide basting brushes, a long-handled, sturdy metal spatula, spring-loaded tongs, a timer and a meat thermometer near the grill to ensure food is properly prepared.
Before firing up the grill, check the connection between the propane tank and the fuel line. Ensure that the tubes where the air and gas mix are not blocked. Insects love to build nests in these tubes, so use a pipe cleaner to clear out debris.
Check gas grill hoses for cracking, brittleness and holes. If you detect a gas leak, turn off the gas immediately and don't light the grill until the leak has been repaired by a professional.

Grill in a well-ventilated area, away from shrubs, buildings, awnings or patio umbrellas. Do not wear loose clothing or lean over the top of a grill as you're lighting it.
Store fluids or pressurized grill fuels outside your home.
