PROPANE GRILL SAFETYCheck the gas tank hose for leaks before using your propane grill for the first time each year. Apply a light soap and water solution to the hose. A propane leak will release bubbles. If your grill has a gas leak, identified by smell or the soapy bubble test, and there is no flame, turn off both the gas tank and the grill. If the leak stops, get the grill serviced by a professional before using it again. If the leak continues, call 9-1-1. Also, if you ever smell gas while cooking, immediately move away from the grill and call 9-1-1.
