Pellet Grill Safety

Pellet grills are one of the fastest growing trends and can add a variety of flavors to your creations using different types of wood pellets. Whether you choose hickory, pecan, cherry, or any other of the flavor-gracing wood pellet options, you should keep a few safety tips in mind before grilling or smoking.
  • Keep your wood pellets dry and do not use your grill or smoker in the rain.
  • Although wood pellet grills and smokers are prized for their ability to achieve a steady and precise temperature, be sure to check on your grill or smoker every once in awhile during use.
  • Make sure not to expose cords to water or other liquid and visually inspect them for damage and wear before you start grilling or smoking.
  • Only use your pellet grill in a properly ventilated area with the grill chimney open.
  • lean your grill when it has cooled down completely and remember to unplug it before cleaning or examining electronics.
  • Make sure electrical cords are secured and connected to a ground fault interrupter while your meal is cooking to avoid tripping or damage to your grill or smoker. 
  • The control knobs should be turned to the off position before plugging in or unplugging the cord.
