Celebrate National Barbecue Month on Your Propane Grill
Just because we’re social distancing doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious grilled meal in honor of National Barbecue Month – especially on Memorial Day next week.
Just make sure you’re ready for this year’s celebration by following these five tips:
- Do your research. Looking for delicious and healthy propane grilling recipes? Here are some resources to help you get started:
Prefer a tasty burger? See below for one of our favorites!
- Shop early. Food shopping on holidays is always a challenge, but this year it will be particularly important to stay ahead of the game (and ahead of your neighbors). Stock up on your grilling favorites now and avoid the Memorial Day scramble.
- Inspect your grill. Do a quick leak check if you are using your propane grill for the first time this season – and, as always, follow safe grilling practices.
- Check your propane levels. Nothing takes the wind out of your holiday sales quite like running out of propane in the middle of a cookout. If you have a built-in grill that runs off your main propane tank, check your fuel gauge and schedule a propane delivery if needed; if you have a portable propane grill that uses a cylinder, check your fuel level and exchange it if needed (here’s a cool trick for checking your propane levels in your cylinder, since it doesn’t have a gauge).
Need a propane cylinder refill? James Oxygen has you covered with $14 refills for your 20 lb. grill propane tanks! Visit one of our four convenient locations from 7:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. for a refill.
- Ditch the charcoal and get a propane grill. Nothing beats the speed, convenience and precision temperature of a propane grill. If you’re still cooking on charcoal, up your outdoor game with propane. At James Oxygen, we offer terrific propane gas grills from Phoenix and Broilmaster, including grills with side burners, rotisseries, and more. Contact us today to learn more.
