Packed with power and performance, the propane grill can perfectly produce excellent tasting grilled food. Using a gas grill for your outdoor barbecue or grilling experience makes it easier, faster and healthier than using other fuel sources.
For purists, the concept of using a gas grill is unthinkable but the overwhelming number of grills sold on the market today are propane-fueled gas grills.
Beyond the reasons listed above, propane stores better than charcoal and has a steady heat curve than can not be replicated using charcoal. Great tasting grilled food starts with a quality grill so now is a great time to consider either a new grill or replacing an old one.
The Power Of Propane
Propane is an odorless gas this produced as a by-product of processing methane for use. Consisting of different carbon chains propane produces slightly more BTU, on the order of fifteen percent but it depends on the residual amount propene, (another chemical) that is in the propane.
The unique aspect of propane and the most important part for grillers is that it vaporizes at normal atmospheric pressure. Thus is can be compressed into a liquid and stored in pressurized bottles or tanks for extended periods and still return to a useable gas state when returned to normal pressure. Charcoal will degrade over time and thus become less effective. It also requires a significant amount of space to store.
A tank of propane can contain thousands of BTU of energy in a much smaller state. You can purchase bottles or tanks of various sizes and if your home uses propane as a fuel source, your grill can be connected to your residential supply. Propane grills are some of the best quality grills for getting delicious grilled food, hot and fast.
