1. Be Safe

Whether you’re having a small gathering or a party for Labor Day, one deck idea that most all agree on, is that cooking out is fun for everyone.

But safety has to come first when it comes to deck grilling – or grilling on the deck.

Here are some grilling safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:
  • Grills should only be used outdoors
  • The grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches.
  • Keep children and pets away from the grill area
  • Keep your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grills in the trays below the grill
  • Never leave your grill unattended.
