To avoid losing your grill, store your grill inside. But what should you do about storing propane tanks?

* Securely fasten them outdoors.
* Try tying them to trees or columns of your house.
* You can also store it inside the trunk of your car if you are leaving your car outside.
* DO NOT store your propane tanks in your garage. Propane is very volatile and flammable.
* If the tank leaks, all it takes is a tiny spark for a fire to start.
