Propane Tanks and Other Essential Grill Accessories
When it comes to grilling, most people like to keep it simple, but having a variety of tools to help you cook that perfect steak or press that perfect hamburger can go a long ways in improving your backyard bbq skills. Here’s a look at the top grilling essentials to help you look like a pro grilling chef this summer.
Propane Tank Refill vs Propane Exchange
When it comes time to get more propane, you will undoubtedly be faced with 2 choices; should you refill your current propane tank or exchange it for a brand new one?
If you want to save money AND ensure that you’re renewing your old tank with a new full tank, it’s always best to refill your propane tank rather than exchange it.
When you exchange your tank, the propane tank you exchange it with likely isn’t full to the brim. Those tanks sit around for awhile and ultimately lose some of the gas, whereas topping off your current tank ensures it’s completely full. Not to mention that it costs less to refill it versus exchanging it.
So it truly is a no-brainer here. Save money and have your propane last longer by getting your propane refilled.
