Well, the Grilling and Smoking season is here, and as usual there will be some accidents. We want you to be very careful out there and watch your P's and Q's . Handle the lighting of your Cookers with care , and be sure to extinguish your fires well. The Firemen are wanting a day off too.
Keep the Kiddos away from the cooking until you are sure they are old enough to understand the repercussions .
Have a fire extinguisher handy for the spark that gets away. If you are using Propane, remember this... when heated to much a propane tank will brust, when this happens the Gas expands several hundred times the volume in the tank causing a "B.L.E.V.E." that's a 'boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion' and takes everything around with it...bad JUJU.
Check all your electrical connections and R/R if needed before you get that jolt and say"Should of listened".
Be aware that IF you use a liquid fuel to start your fire, 'do not stand back and squirt more on to speed up the process , if you need, paper is better. Better yet, be PATIENT , you have all day.
Guys , I know it's hard, but hold off on doing any hard partying(drinking) while cooking, party hardy AFTER the cooking is done. Bad thing to see on the news " Dad got drunk doing a family BBQ and fell into the fire, more on BBQed Dad at !!."
Camping, have water /extinguishers on hand to control fires. You don't want to burn your favorite Picnic area.
Watch for Critters and avoid them if possible, and don't leave food , they can find thier own party goods in the Woods.
Remember all the things you need for the party and make a list to help remind you, woe be you get to your destination and NO MEAT.
Take along enough Water so you don't get dehydrated, Pop , Alcohol and sweet drinks don't do well there, you need the water.
That's what comes to mind to begin with, think things out and plan to be safe. We need you all and hope you have a wonderful Summer.
Have all the fun you can and as always . . .
