  • Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders should always be transported in the upright position
  • Ensure all connections are tight
  • Make sure grease is not allowed to drip onto the hose or gas cylinder
  • Store the cylinder (including those attached to barbecues), outdoors in a shaded, cool area
  • Read thoroughly and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for gas grill use.


  • Use only a small amount of charcoal starter fuel
  • Once a fire has been started, never add more starter fuel!
  • Use great caution in disposing of ashes.
