Your Neighbor in Real Estate: It's Grilling Time ~ An Important Alert

It's Grilling Time ~ An Important Alert

It's Grilling Time ~ An Important Alert

Along with the advent of this my Favorite time of the year comes the ubiquitous presence of the Great American Barbecue. So, in perusing some favorite grilling recipes, I came across an alert about a potential danger that I did not know about. BBQ Safety

Many people use those wire bristle brushes to clean the grill. It seems that there have been many people who have found out that they had accidentally ingested some wire bristles from the grill brushes right along with the meat they ate.

They complained about abdominal pain, and throat area pain when swallowing. Subsequent ex-rays and CT scans showed small pieces of wire in their throats or abdomens.

Solution: After cleaning your grill with a wire brush, wipe down the grill with a wet paper towel to make sure that no wire pieces are left. Perhaps, you may want to consider nylon scrubbers or grill "stones" that you can use instead of the wire brushes.

And now, Pass the BBQ sauce , please and enjoy!

Hi Sandy -- as Gabe commented --- that is scary and something I never gave any thought.   It makes a lot of sense especially during these warm summer days of a lot of outdoor grilling.
