Summertime means grilling time! It’s perfect for those hot nights when turning on the oven seems like pure torture. Grilling also gives you the chance to eat healthy, as it’s the perfect way to cook lean meats and garden-fresh veggies.

However, to grill safely, there’s a lot to consider. After all, you do not want to ruin a backyard barbecue with a bad tummy ache or a burn! To avoid this, I always recommend the following tips for a safe grilling season.

Safe Grilling Tips

Transport meat safely. Whether this means from the store to your kitchen or from your home to a neighborhood party, keep your meat cold at all times and separate it from all other food items. After grocery shopping, promptly refrigerate or freeze your meat. If you’re headed out to grill, pack a cooler with plenty of ice.



The USDA recommends that meat should be kept at 40 degrees or below; otherwise, it can spoil and make you sick. To minimize bacteria growth and avoid cross-contamination, I always keep a separate cooler just for meat whenever we picnic.
