How to Buy A Natural Gas Grill

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. Natural gas, connected to your house won’t run out until the gas company does in 30 to 40 years.

Most all gas fired outdoor appliances whether they are grills, smoker, patio heaters, or fire pits come in a natural gas version. Simply plugging in a natural gas line to your propane grill won’t work, even if you could get the connector. 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.

Now all you need is a gas line to a convenient location. There are two things in my house that scare me, electricity and gas. I don’t mess with either one because I know both of them can kill me quickly and easily. Running a gas line to your backyard porch or patio isn’t something you should do yourself, unless you are a certified contractor. Contact your gas company. They will have a list of certified contractors who can do the job for you. Get a couple of bids. The whole process is pretty easy and shouldn’t take more than an hour or two.

On the subject, have your installer put in a quick connect gas line so you can plug in your gas appliance easily. One product I really like is Maxitrol’s Plug 1 gas connector. This connector is the size of a regular electrical outlet box and works pretty much the same way. It has a drop down cover for the gas line so nothing can crawl in and nest. It also has a on/off switch so you can turn off the flow of gas some place other than the gas appliance. If you had an uncontrollable grill fire you could turn off the gas from a distance without having to get too close to the grill. It also turns itself off if the flow of gas becomes uncontrollable, like if the gas line to the grill got cut. It &’s a convenient unit and adds a lot of safety to your outdoor gas appliances. Tell your contractor that this is what you want and he’ll think you know more than you do and won’t try and jack up the installation price.
