Sizzle, Flip, Yum: Safe Grilling Tips

Summer and backyard grilling go hand in glove, or perhaps hand in spatula. Nothing whets our appetite for summer like the smell of burgers over open flame, but no one wants to end up in the ER while that juicy burger or perfectly grilled salmon goes to waste.

As you fire up the gas or stoke the embers on your trusty old Weber, follow the tips for a safe grilling below.
