There are more than 1,000 barbeque accidents every year, and three quarters of the victims are men. 

The SUVA insurance company says most injuries involve hands – but heads, arms and legs are also affected.

The company advises not to use fluid to get the fire going, but blocks. And if using a gas fired grill make sure the bottle is securely connected.
