A simple test for checking gas grill leaks

Por LisaMarie Sinatra

Ayer, NFPA kicked off the grilling season with the launch of its first of two new new grilling safety videos.

In our second video, A Simple Test for Checking Gas Grill Leaks,” we share a couple of quick and easy but important tips to prepare your grill before you even start to cook those burgers and steaks.

Prepare my grill, you ask? But whatever do you mean? After a long winter season of hibernation (OK, in some parts of the country!) your grill has been stored away and covered up never to see the light of day until today. It’s important to do a complete safety check on the grill to ensure everyone’s safety at the next cookout or BBQ.

NFPA refers to this as thesoapy bubble testand this video takes your though the process step-by-step. Not to mention, it’s kind of a cool name, eh? Take a look and let us know what you think! If you’re someone who does this each year, let us know. Your diligence is sure to inspire and encourage others to do the same.

Find this video and other great information on our grilling fire safety web page at And share all of the videos with your friends and family.

By practicing it each time you grill and sharing your knowledge, you’ll be well on your way to a having a safe and fun cookout every day of the year!

Here’s to a happy and very safe grilling season, everyone!
