Over the last few years more and more outdoor appliances have shown up that are gas powered. Patio heaters, gas fireplaces, and of course gas cooking equipment. Also grills have gotten larger and larger and much more powerful. This means that you could be burning through propane tank after tank if you spend a lot of time in on the porch. So what are you going to do? Make regular trips to refill or exchange your empty propane tank?

Why not go natural gas.

Natural gas has many benefits. First of all, depending on where you live it can be much cheaper, as much as a third the price of propane for each BTU. Since natural gas has half the power of propane it can actually cost a sixth as much or less than propane per volume, but since you use twice as much it's still a third the price.

Also, natural gas burns much cleaner than propane. So natural gas is better for the environment and you don't get as much exhaust from the burning propane which can end up on your food and float around your party. Lastly, natural gas, connected to your house won't run out until the gas company does in 30 to 40 years. No more tanks to refill, no more worrying about running out in the middle of a big cook out and no more carrying those heavy tanks.

Most all gas fired outdoor appliances whether they are grills, smoker, patio heaters, or fire pits come in a natural gas version. For many of these the difference is just a few parts. As I said, natural gas has about half the BTUs (amount of heat generated) as propane.

Simply plugging in a natural gas line to your propane grill won't work, even if you could get the connector. If you are in the market for a new grill, think about natural gas before you buy. Most stores will have them available or they can order one for you. If you already have a propane burning gas grill contact the manufacturer about getting a conversion kit.

For many gas grill models you can make the conversion in a few minutes with little more than a wrench.
