SAFETY RULES AND WARNINGS
ALWAYS REMEMBER SAFETY FIRST!
Be sure to read and follow all the instructions and fire safety information provided in this booklet. Check with your local fire department, and local town or city hall, about fire codes and open fire burning regulations and restrictions. Follow the fire safety instructions and recommendations by Fire Safety Agencies like:
● Chimney Safety Institute of America www.csia.org

Keep your hearth and chimney clean!
Check to see that the chimney or stove pipe is clear, clean and in good repair.
Check for loose or missing bricks, cracks in the flue lining, debris and other obstructions.
Make sure the dampers are working properly.
We recommend that your fireplace and chimney be frequently inspected by a National Fireplace Institute www.nficertified.org Certified Specialist, or a Chimney Safety Institute of America www.csia.org Certified Chimney Sweep.
Have a working and properly rated fire extinguisher on hand. Refer to your local authority to determine proper size and type.
Install smoke alarms and Carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home and inside and outside of sleeping areas. Test them monthly and change the batteries at least once a year.
Keep combustibles at a safe distance away from your hearth, campfire, woodstove or fireplace.
Make sure you use the FIRE GRILL™cooking system in an area where children and pets cannot come into contact with unit. Close supervision is necessary when the unit is in use or still hot after being used. Once unit has cooled, ensure proper care and storage.
Never leave a fire in the fireplace or campfire unattended. Always make sure that the fire is completely extinguished before going to bed for the night or when leaving the house, outdoor fire source or camp site.
The components of the FIRE GRILL™ cooking system will become hot to the touch when in use. Always protect yourself by wearing fireplace gloves or oven mitts when handling this product.
Try to avoid cooking foods with a high fat content like bacon or fatty meats.
Oil, fat and grease vapors can collect inside your chimney or stove pipe wall, and along with creosote and airborne food particles deposits, create a fire hazard.
NEVER deep-fry foods in your fireplace or woodstove or any open fire source.
We recommend that you burn a normal HOT fire between cooking events.
DO NOT burn any material other than seasoned hard wood as your fuel source. Well-seasoned wood such as oak, maple cherry, birch and apple burn clean, save and create the most heat. Soft woods like Pine and other evergreens create sparks and accelerate creosote buildup when burned. Creosote buildup in chimneys and stovepipes is the number one cause of chimney fires.
NEVER use flammable liquids to start a fire.
NEVER BURN CHARCOAL INDOORS!!! It can create deadly Carbon monoxide.
WARNING!!! YOUR INDOOR FIREPLACE WAS NOT INTENDED OR DESIGNED FOR COOKING. BY-PRODUCTS OF COOKING SUCH AS SMOKE, SOOT, EVAPORATED FATS AND OILS, AND AIRBORN FOOD PARTICLES CAN COLLECT ON THE INSIDE WALLS OF YOUR FLUE AND CHIMNEY AND CREATE A DANGEROUS FIRE HAZARD. IF YOU DECIDE TO USE THE FIREGRILL™ COOKING SYSTEM WITH YOUR INDOOR HEARTH, FIREPLACE OR WOODSTOVE OR ANY INDOOR OR OUTDOOR FIRE SOURCE, YOU ARE DOING IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
