Barbecue Frequently Asked Questions

Why is there a price difference between a natural gas and a propane barbecue?

The mechanics of a natural gas barbecue are more complex than a propane barbecue, which means a slightly higher price tag. In the end, the money you save using natural gas compared to propane will more than outweigh the initial outlay.

Isn’t propane a lot cheaper than natural gas?

Natural gas is much cheaper than propane. Even when you consider the cost of installing a natural gas hook-up in the backyard, it will be less expensive in the long run.

I just got my propane grill and now I’m wishing I chose a natural gas model. Can I change my mind?

Yes, you can change your mind. Call a retailer who specializes in grills and they can advise you on converting your propane grill to natural gas.

What if I get into trouble with my natural gas grill - if the fuel never runs out, how would I turn it off?

Every natural gas grill comes with a connection to the gas supply and an on/off valve that is separate from your grill. Any time you want, you can turn the valve and the gas is out.

I have three propane tanks I no longer need now that I switched to natural gas, what can I do with these tanks?

Speak to the manager at the propane filling station and see if they can safely disposed of the tanks.
