Gas Vs. Propane for a BBQ


Gas BBQ grills provide the option of cooking foods outside without the bother and messiness of charcoal or wood. The two main types of gas grills are powered by either natural gas or propane.

Natural Gas Grills

  • Natural gas is the less expensive of the two options and burns cleaner than propane. However, unless the yard or deck already has gas lines installed, the cost of having lines extended from the home gas sources may be cost prohibitive, although the long-term savings would offset the price of installation.

Propane-Fueled BBQs

  • Since propane fuel is sold in refillable tanks that attach to the barbecue grill housing, propane grills are more convenient. Unlike natural gas-powered barbecue grills, propane grills can be used anywhere on a deck or in a yard and transported to sporting events or picnic areas.

Cooking Comparisons

  • Although both types of gas efficiently cook foods in about the same amount of time, some food enthusiasts claim natural gas imparts grilled foods with fewer fuel flavors than propane models.
