    To those of you who grill

    How often do you have to exchange the LP canister?

    Ehh...once every 4 months or so? I just know that when the flames are too low to be usable at all, that's when we replace it.

    Charcoal baybeh here, however I would like to upgrade and have both next year. While a special friend of mine purchased a lovely char-broil for me - and some of the instant briqeuts - I upgraded to back to where I used to grill/smoke - and use a couple of the instant to light - and use charcoal and briquets (oh sp) for the remainder - love it.

    However, in the winter in a wind, etc - it's pretty awesome to push the button (provided that works, that is usually the first thing to go on a nominally priced butane grill) in the snow and have FLAME ON.

    Although I must say my grilling <shines fingernails> does include some very nice schmoking stuffs in the winter>

    Never. When we redid the back patio, I got a permanent grill that's hooked to the household gas. I use it for everything. I even did the T'giving turkey out there last year.

    If I ever buy a house again, I'll go this route. But that won't be for some time.

    I ask because we are moving into a smaller house, and the kitchen is easily half the size of the current one. Thinking about getting a gas grill and do a bunch of cooking outdoors, to get me out of the cramped quarters.

    You can get portable grills that run on household gas. You'll need a plumber to hook you up, but if you plan on doing tons of grilling, it may be worth the initial investment.

    ^^This. Sometimes it lasts for almost a year, sometimes it lasts for 4 months. It depends on how often I use the grill.

    I use a chimney to start it too. No gasoline flavored food for me.

    I'm estimating that we grill about 3 times a week (even in winter). We exchange our tank approximately every 3 months.

    Charcoal, or even better, real hardwood limbs. Started with crumpled up newspaper (chimney optional). And the food should be slow cooked for hours over the heat and in the smoke! If you wish, add a little pan of fruit juice to the grill....it will add a little something extra to the smoke flavor, my favorite is apple juice.

    When it needs replacement. Which is why we have a spare.

    Best thing I ever did was plumb my gas grill into the natural gas line to my house. I have never been out of gas for the grill in the last 10 years. Burns a bit cooler, but I am no grill master anyway.

    I'll say...a texican who uses gas. They hang people like that in Amarillo, you know.

    Gas is big in Texas. My parents live in a golf community on a lake in east Texas. They place has natural gas. Seems a VP of Lonestar Gas moved in and he wanted gas at his lake house. They ran a pipeline to StarHarbor for him, or so the legend goes.

    Charcoal adds a nice flavor, but is sure is nice to turn on the grill, light it and go get a beer while the grill heats up.

    Exchange? Never. I take my tank to the RV park just down the road and have them fill it up.
