August is the perfect time of year to enjoy your backyard—not to mention firing up the grill as often as possible! And if you’re doing exactly that, you should know also that grilling with propane is as easy and efficient as can be. However, one thing you don’t want to do is get caught without enough gas!
It’s easy to check how much propane you have and figure out how many more meals you can cook with what’s in your tank. Here are some tips to help you out:
Whether you’re just planning to cook for the family or need to grill a feast for neighbors and friends, you want to know you have enough in the tank to finish the meal. Here are some ways to check your propane level.
You can choose from a variety of gauge types:
What does this all mean in terms of how much grill time you have left? Here’s a general rule of thumb: A medium-sized grill on high heat will use approximately two pounds of fuel per meal. So, a 20-pound tank should provide 18 to 20 hours of cooking time. If you have a larger grill, you may get roughly half that amount of cooking time with a 20-pound tank.
Remember, these are just estimates. Several factors will affect how much cooking time you’ll get out of a tank. If you have a backup cylinder, you never have to worry about being caught without enough propane to get grilling.
