Close the vents on the bottom of the kettle

If your grill has a thermometer, close the bottom vents when the temperature reaches 250 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a good time to put on an oven mitt or other protective gloves, as this will likely be quite hot to the touch. Once you’ve closed off all airflow from below, it’s time to tackle any air coming in through side vents and top openings.

Close the damper on the lid

If you want to make sure that the fire on your grill is out, close the damper on the lid. This will prevent oxygen from getting into the grill and reigniting any embers. Make sure that you have turned off all fuel sources before doing this; it’s also a good idea to have a fire extinguisher ready in case things get out of hand.

Turn off propane tank

You can turn off your propane tank by turning the knob until it is pointing in a straight line. Be sure to keep an eye on the propane tank, because if you’re not careful, it could be dangerous for someone else.

Some people have been injured or even killed when they went near a propane tank after turning it off and tripped over it or knocked into something that hit the tank and caused an explosion.

If you are going to dispose of your propane grill, make sure that there are no sparks around before doing so. If there are sparks nearby, do not light any matches or use any lighters near them!

The safety precautions for this step include: taking all flammable items out from around where you will be disposing of your grill; wearing gloves while handling hot surfaces (this is important because some metals may give off harmful chemicals); making sure no one else has built anything close by that could catch fire; having an adult supervise children who may want to play with matches or lighters while playing with fireworks at home/at campgrounds/on vacation.


Cover your grill and close the lid

Cover your grill. This is one of the most important steps, as it will help contain the heat and prevent sparking. If you don’t have a cover, use old newspapers or a damp cloth to cover the grill. You can also use aluminum foil for this purpose as well, but be sure to spray or rub butter on it first so that it doesn’t burn up in contact with high heat!

Close the lid firmly over the grill top (not bottom). Remember not to close it too tightly. Air needs to circulate beneath the lid so that coals won’t suffocate from lack of oxygen (and thus go out).
