Grill Buying Guide:
Welcome to the Gas Grill Buying  Guide where its all about Gas Grills. This is the largest directory of Gas  Grills on the net. 

We have compiled this database to help you sort through the complex process of buying a gas grill. We know that gas grill can be very expensive and can get rather confusing with all of the options that are available.  We are here to help you sort through all of the different grills, sizes and options. The following pages will help you eliminate  some of the confusion and get right to the grill that is best for you. 

So, Where do you Start?  The first thing you need to know is if you have a Natural Gas supply or you will be  running off of Propane Gas.  What's the difference right?  Well... Natural gas is a service that is Not available in all areas but is certainly the most convenient.  Having a natural gas supply means that you have a continuous supply  of gas provided by a local utility company.  Where as propane gas is stored in a bottle on your property.  These bottles can vary in size from a 1 LB. hand held bottle to the most common 20 Lb. Cylinder or a much larger tank used to supply gas to your entire house. 

Propane tanks are very convenient if you want to have  a grill that you can move around and take with you.  The down side to propane is  that larger grills consume an enormous amount of propane and you can end up going through propane bottles rather quickly.  Let me tell you, there is Nothing worse than having a turkey or steak cooking on your grill and having your propane bottle go empty on you.  If you are cooking with propane make sure that  your bottle if full enough to finish cooking your meal.  The nice and best thing  about natural gas is that you never have this problem, it is a continuous supply and do Not have to worry about running out of gas while cooking.  If you are  currently using a propane bottle and are tired of refilling it check with your local gas company and see if you can get a natural gas supply ran to your  house. 

So which is better??  There is No difference operationally or from a grill performance standpoint.  Both natural and propane gases are delivered to the grills burner in the same  fashion.  Each grill has a set orifice that regulates the amount of gas that is sent into the grills burner.  A natural gas grill's orifice will allow more gas to flow through than a propane gas grill,  but both gasses will cook at the same  temperature.  While cooking you probably will Not Notice the difference between  the two.

What to Look for When Purchasing Your Next Grill.

Andrew says: Absolutely! Our calculations show that, on average, a propane grill costs nearly seven times more to operate than a natural gas grill. This is based on a standard propane cylinder refill at $18 per tank or $4.19 per therm. Natural gas prices fluctuate, but average about $.60 per therm. At this  price, the natural gas energy equivalent would be only $2.58, saving $15.42 over  the cost of a tank of propane. Installing a natural gas grill in a new home  costs about $150. For minimal added cost, you'll make it easier for your home  buyers to enjoy the convenience and economy of a natural gas grill. By piping in advance and installing Quick Connects for gas grills or other patio products,  you'll increase both your homes' value and your buyers' satisfaction. And your  home owners will never run out of fuel in the middle of a family barbeque!
