As millions across the country prepare their grills for this year's Memorial Day Weekend, we thought it would be a good opportunity to remind everyone of some simple barbecue safety tips. For example, always keep an eye on the grill. Another tip: don't throw gasoline or entire cans of lighter fluid onto the grill.
We know these rules might seem complicated at first, so to further illustrate them, we collected a few of the worst barbecue FAILS on YouTube. These 7 mishaps will teach you exactly what NOT to do during a Memorial Day barbecue (or a barbecue on any day ever). Check them out, and be careful out there.
Don't pour too much flammable liquid onto your grill.

Be careful where you stand.
Always keep an eye on the barbecue.
Two lessons here: 1. Gasoline is not a replacement for lighter fluid, and 2. Never spray flammable liquids so close to a flame.
Don't put a can of deodorant onto the grill. And if you do, don't get near the grill.
Again, no gasoline. We can't stress this enough.
The lighting is the trickiest part. Be careful.
