    If you have natural gas at your home already, you are better off getting a natural gas BBQ and having a gas fitter install an outlet for you on the existing piping that is already running into your house. You don’t buy NG in portable containers like you do with propane.

    In southern Ontario we are paying roughly half for NG of what you would pay to use propane for home or water heating.

    One of the best places to go for BBQ’s in this area is Ontario Gas BBQ. They are in Concord. They sell both NG and propane models. Really expensive ones or inexpensive models too. I’ve dealt with them for years.

    Look in the yellow pages for a heating contractor and they should be able to install the gas connection and hose and everything for you.

    Low Pressure (LP/Propane) gas is more expensive than natural gas because it has to be transported and stored, then distributed in quantities convenient to those who want to use it. Natural gas is carried in pipelines, then distributed through a pipe network to homes and businesses that want to use it.

    Propane grills are portable, to an extent, making them easier to move around your patio or yard from sun to shade, etc. Natural gas grills are more or less tied to the immediate area of the gas tap.

    You can add a natural gas outlet for your grill by tapping into the supply lines in your home. This is best left to a plumber because of the danger of a fire. If you do it yourself and there’s a fire later your insurance company may not cover the damage.

    natural gas is much cheaper than propane, but getting the gas plumbing to your unit might be expensive. Make sure that you buy a barbeque that is rated for natural gas. Most barbeques are either one or the other. Newer models can use either or.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
    twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83

    share it with someone!
