HOW TO HAVE A SAFE SUMMER BARBECUE

HOW TO HAVE A SAFE SUMMER BARBECUE!



With the 4th of July rapidly approaching and the summer in full swing, it's the season of enjoying the outdoors and having fun filled barbecues! Everyone loves a good barbecue, but remember to always keep it safe. Here are some tips on how to barbecue safely!

  • When preparing food to be transported you need to remember a few important tips:
    • Always wash your hands often during food preparation.
    • Pre-patty burgers and pre-season chicken or pork before packing. This will help keep a clean an uncontaminated barbecue area.
    • Never thaw frozen meat on the counter at room temperature. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
    • Separate raw foods from prepared food in different coolers, this includes drinks.
    • Make sure you have plenty of ice for coolers.
    • Be sure that you pack enough utensils so that you have ones designated for cooking and serving (this includes plates, tongs, and spatulas).
    • Pack soap and a few clean towels for hand-washing. Invest in a few sanitizer buckets, this will allow you to clean your work area properly.

    • Never let food sit out for more than 2 hours.

    • Keep your food packed under ice, not resting on top of ice (remember that heat rises and cold falls)
    • Cook all food to a safe temperature.
 
  • After the barbecue you must be willing to toss out any extra food that you think may have been compromised by temperature abuse or cross contamination. (When in doubt, throw it out!)

We hope you have lots of safe and enjoyable events with family and friends this 4th of July and the rest of the  summer!
