How do you guys 'feed' your gas BBQ? Tap into the main tanks or do you have a smaller portable tank.

If you tap in how did u do it?
If you are with a portable tank how and where do you store it?

Thanks

We have an adapter hose that connects to the grill from a larger tank. If we want, we can leave that off, and use the little disposable cans.

Hi, I have a nice portable, stainless steel, propane fueled Barbeque. [I use the little green cans] I took it on one trip and now I only use it at home. After using it once, it smells, and it has to ride in our trailer or inside of our SUV. Also I like to keep it clean and I can't do a good job cleaning my barbeque while on the road; I need to clean it at home. Might consider it if I towed with an open bed pick-up truck. [My opinion and experience]

I have gone both ways. I have a hose to adapt the small BBQ from the 1 pound disposables to refillables. I either take along an extra 10 pounder on the A frame or temporarily take one of my tanks off to run it at the picnic table. If I am taking along the big Unit grill or the turkey fryers, I sometimes take along an extra 20 pounder which I carry in a 4 gallon plastic milk rack, which prevents it from tipping over in the back of the truck

I also carry a 20 pound tank in a plastic milk rack. Works great. I use a Coleman Roadtrip and carry it in the bed of the truck along with the LP tank.

I added an extra hose off the regulator on the Airstream tanks and run my BBQ or generator with that.

I have a small aluminum tank that fits inside one of those orange homer buckets for my propane grill. I can use it for the propane BBQ cabinet as well.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

We use the little cans. It's just easier.

Thanks folks, after reading up more on the dealing with a T of the main tanks it seems easier to get a little 10lb tank and go that route. And it's more flexible than that 12ft hose...I have a truck I tow with so I guess that's the best place to put the tank and grill. I have a Coleman roadtrip, so that thing is to big to be stored in any of the compartments.

Thanks

That's what we have, and where we carry it.
