When we called to ask a spokesman for the National Barbecue Association
about the ways a barbecue grill can kill you, he seemed confused and, frankly, a little disturbed. "Actually," he told us, "we're really more about the fun side of grilling—barbecue competitions and things like that. We don't really deal with the dark stuff."

From exploding propane tanks to cancer-laden briskets, we've researched the many ways that unassuming Hibachi in your backyard can lead to your untimely demise. Sorry if the following info leads to a barbecue buzz kill—we're just looking out for you.
