If you want to be sure that you’re not going to run out of cooking fuel during one of those summer gatherings, you need to consider converting your barbeque over to natural gas. Remember that there are instances where you can covert your propane barbeque over to natural gas but it’s best to check with the place where you bought it so you can get the right conversion kit. Once you find the right conversion kit and install it, your barbeque won’t run on propane again.
There are some distinct benefits other than the fact that you can do away with those propane tanks that run out. For example, natural gas generates about half the BTUs or heat as propane. As well, getting the right natural gas connector will make the whole process much easier than lugging those heavy tanks around. There are one or two things that you’ll need to understand about these connectors.
Make sure the connector that you choose has a drop down lid so that the gas line is covered. Another great safety feature should be an on/off switch that can be used at some other point than the appliance that the line is hooked up to. If something on the barbeque catches fire while you’re cooking, it’s good to know that you’ve got another method of shutting the whole system down safely from a distance.
