Our BBQ is so awesome that it has it's own set of rules:
If you're not confident in using gas BBQs, now is not the time to learn. Go to Korean BBQ instead.
Never leave a BBQ unattended – burnt chops will be the least of your problems.
Remember to secure the lid in the open position – don't let a gust of wind slam the lid on your lunch.
The grease container will overflow with heavy use, depending on what you're cooking. Check and empty periodically.
Please close the lid after the BBQ has cooled down to protect it from weather.
Always turn the gas OFF after use.
Please leave me as you found me - $50 additional cleaning fee applies if the BBQ is left dirty
Damage to our BBQ will incur a $400 replacement fee.
