Default Cooking with Propane

I just picked this up from our local TV station here in Jefferson City, Mo. Check out this article. It might make you appreciate your charcoal, pellets, or wood a little more. Where does the insanity end!

Propane use

Never an issue for me. My tanks get refilled and come back home with me. Never any swapping of tanks.

I will say though that this is something that I never heard of before. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

If you use the same tank that should not be a problem. I do not do the exchange tank method

This link to snopes shows the unlikelihood of this happening.

I use 30# tanks, and I can fill them locally for $19 (27# @ $.70 per pound). The exchange rate for a 20# Blue Rino tank is $20 (18# @ $1.11 per pound). Brand new the tanks cost about $60 so you recover the cost of the tank after just a little more than 5 refills. No-brainer Mod!

Other impacts of using propane is that your entire pit could blow up.

A coworker had his propane grill blow up just about a month ago. He is a convert to charcoal all of a sudden.

even more savings if you get the tank from Rino the first time, and then go fill up yourself when it runs out.

"His company, on average, disposes of five meth contaminated propane tanks every month. But given the thousands of tanks they process it's not a very common problem."


Sounds like the press is trying to scare folks by "Blowing" this out of proportion. Tim

I would imagine it would be a big problem if you happened to get one of the contaminated tanks.

Default We also have a Rino tank for a quick backup.

My camp trailer uses two 30 lb. tanks so most of my experience is with the larger tanks. We do also have a 20 lb. Rhino tank as a backup that can be easily exchanged while on the road. The local welding shop where i get my tanks filled will not fill the Rhino tanks for some reason. We have also had people give us old style tanks that were full. You can get a converter for the things for about $12. If I weigh the tank and it contains more than $12 worth propane then I will use an adapter but the shop will not fill the tanks through the adapter. To have the tank converted costs about $30 which is half the price of a new 30 lb. tank so I never had the old tanks converted and certifies. I could probably find people that would fill the things but i believe keeping the gas cylinders in pretty good condition and in compliance with the laws or send them to the recycle plant.

I do not grill or smoke with propane but this year I think I will build a burner that will be used as a fire starter or an over night burner to be used after the meat has completed a good smoke burn.
