Not long ago, an outdoor cooking area consisted of a portable grill and a picnic table. Today, more and more homeowners are stepping up their game, with some creating elaborate alfresco built-in kitchens, while others opt for grills with an abundance of new prep and cooking features. What do all of these have in common? Propane. As warmer weather approaches, now is the time to do your Propane Gas Safety Check on your propane equipment associated with outdoor living.

Propane appliances such as grills, patio heaters, fire pits, and outdoor lights are great ways to help you maximize enjoyment of your outdoor living area while providing a safe source of warmth, ambience, and — of course — burgers! Because many of these appliances are portable and available in a range of sizes and prices, you can customize your outdoor space to fit your style, needs, and budget.
