How To Shop For A Propane Grill: What To Look For

Lil’ Hank’s Tank Exchange makes your summer grilling a breeze

propane grill shopping new jerseyWith Memorial Day weekend in the rearview mirror, grilling season has begun in earnest here in southern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. What are you looking forward to grilling this summer? If you’re looking to step outside your usual routine of burgers, hot dogs, and chicken breasts, we have a few grilling recipe ideas.

But is your grill up to the job? If your old grill is showing its age, or is no longer safe to use, now is the time to start looking for a new grill. And if you haven’t tried grilling on a propane grill, this is a great opportunity to upgrade.

Propane grilling is fast, convenient, and easy. It’s perfect for quick weeknight suppers because there’s no work involved in getting the grill started, no long wait for the grill to be ready, and no messy clean-up afterward, all of which come with charcoal grills. And its instant temperature control mean you can go on a dime from making barbecued chicken on a medium heat to making veggie kebabs and burgers on a higher heat.

Another advantage propane grilling has over charcoal is that it burns clean. So there’s no heavy, smoky flavor to overwhelm lighter, more delicate flavors like fish, citrus, herbs, and fruits.

Propane for your grill is easy to get with Lil’ Hank’s Tank Exchange, located at retail establishments all over our service area!

We have some tips to take with you when you go shopping for a new propane grill so you can find the just-right one for you:

Know what you can afford

While you may want the biggest grill and all the bells and whistles, your bank account may not. Fortunately, propane grills come in all price ranges so you can find a grill that fits what you can spend.

Know the cooking space you need

Are you grilling for two to four people, or do you regularly have your relatives and friends over and grill for 15 or more people? How many people you grill for will dictate the size of the grill you need. Figure on grill space of 10 inches by 10 inches for each person.

Know about propane grill features

With today’s propane grills, you can kick your grilling game up several notches with features like side burners, rotisseries, multiple levels of grilling surfaces, smoker boxes, and more! However, these features can add to the price of the grill, so only get what you know you’ll use regularly.
