Barbecues

Barbecues are great when the sun is shining and you have friends and family to visit, but they do carry a fire risk. Follow our barbecue safety advice to avoid injury and damage to property or wildlife.

Top Tips

Disposable Barbecues

As a Service we don’t encourage the use of disposable barbecues anywhere other than your own garden. If you do use a disposable barbecue:

It must be placed on an even surface on either bricks or paving slabs.

Place disposable barbecues well away from the house, shed or fences.

If you’re using a disposable barbecue ensure it has cooled before putting it in the bin. To avoid starting a fire you should allow it to cool for several hours and then consider pouring water over it to make sure it’s out.

Charcoal Barbecues

Use only enough charcoal to cover the base to a depth of about 50mm (2 inches).

Only use recognised fire lighters or starter fuel and only on cold coals – use the minimum necessary and never use petrol or paraffin.

Never put hot ashes straight into a dustbin or wheelie bin – they could melt the plastic and cause a fire.

Gas Barbecues

Take a look at this video from Litter Free Dorset on how barbecues burn more than bangers!
