The easiest way to do this is to use a light soap solution on the hose to see if it bubbles and be aware of any propane smell. If you are using charcoal always make sure you use the proper lighter fluid to light the briquettes. One of the easiest ways to stay safe is to keep your grill a safe distance from any flammable objects.
    Fire Chief Dirk Johnson says that distance is one of the easiest ways to stay safe. "Like i say maintain a safe distance. It does cause a lot of heat so keep it a safe distance from all flammables. Do it outdoors none of them are made to be used indoors. Keep it outdoors, keep it away from flammables and enjoy it"
    Between 2007 and 2011 there were a reported 7,500 fires related to barbecues and most are completely preventable by staying safe while you grill.
