Mother Nature has a sense of humor, but you can still grill in the rain. Just move the party indoors and grab your umbrella.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO SUCCESSFULLY GRILL IN THE RAIN
1. Safety First
Electric grills can also be unsafe in the rain. Rain and electricity don’t mix, and using electric grills when it’s raining can get you electrocuted.
2. Do not Grill indoor
never use live fire inside. It’s a safety hazard, so don’t even try it.
You should never, under any circumstances, bring your grill into the house (or even the garage) and try to work with it there. Besides the risk from potential sparks, charcoal and gas grills can also produce large amounts of carbon monoxide that can be extremely dangerous.
3. Few Tips for BBQ Grilling in Wet Weather:
- Make sure your grill is covered. This will protect it from rusting and keep the rain off the coals.
- If possible, set up your grill under an awning or other shelter. This will keep the rain off you as well!
- Keep your food covered as much as possible. This will help prevent it from getting soggy or wet.
- Be careful of puddles!
- Make sure you have a good quality grill that can withstand the elements. Nothing ruins a cookout quicker than a soggy, smoky mess.
- Always have a fire extinguisher handy in case of any accidents.
