General barbecue safety tips
If you haven t got a built in brick barbecue, the first thing you should do is to make sure the site where you re going to put the barbecue is suitable. It should be stable, level, sheltered and away from people, fences, sheds, trees and other areas which could catch fire. If there s a wind blowing, make sure that it s blowing away from you when you light the fire, just in case it flares up. Don t wear any loose clothing which could flap about in the wind and could be set alight by the flames and never move the barbecue once it s lit. In addition, make sure it s situated within a reasonable distance of an available water supply which you can use to extinguish it if things do get out of control.
