Tired of Being Tied Down to Your Barbecue Grill?

Aug 17, 2007
Portable barbecue grills are lots of fun, but you need to know how to transport them safely. You don't want a fun event to end in tragedy. Especially if you are are camping or hunting. Lets just say from personal experience that an open flame, and a few beers are never a good idea.

There is a growing demand for portable grills and it's important that you understand the different features that are out there on the market. A portable grill can be transported to a campsite or to a picnic and be up and running in a matter of minutes. Having a portable grill for use at home has its perks as well. You can move it into the garden or set it up in the garage.

To meet this demand, grill manufacturers have come up with several models. These grills are light, easy to transport, and can be set up easily. They are also budget-friendly, they range in price from $50 to $200.

They should, however, be handled with care especially the propane grills. No one should take chances with natural gas or liquid propane it is highly inflammable and can cause an explosion if handled improperly or in a careless manner.

Make sure that your portable gas grill has no holes or leaks. Though it may appear tedious, you should always test any type of gas grill for leaks. You should not light cigarettes or candles around the grill, as even a small gas leak could trigger an explosion. Also, never tamper with the safety valve fixed on the propane tank.

Similarly, the propane tank should be kept immobile when transporting the grill to another location. It should not be allowed to roll around in the trunk of the car or in the back of a pick-up truck, because that much motion increases the gas pressure inside the tank, and the tank could explode.

Charcoal grills don't suffer from these disadvantages. They are less delicate and can be transported with ease. Their only bad point is that they can take hours to light and warm up in damp or rainy weather. On such occasions, it is better to carry a propane grill despite its disadvantages. Also, use caution when transporting any kind of portable grill after using it, as it could be hot.

The choice is ultimately up to you- there is nothing better than a nice juicy steak after a long day of hunting or fishing. And with the right tools, you should have no problem creating the perfect campsite meal.
