Propane Gas Grill or Natural Gas Grill

So you finally managed to decide whether getting a gas grill was worth it or not. You did a lot of research and possibly ended up in a lot of confusion about what to get. But in the end you did your research and found out that a gas grill is worth your time and money and decided that you are getting a gas grill. Then when you went on to search on brands and their products you might have noticed that some models say propane gas grill while some models say natural gas grill. You did further research on it and found it that it is again a choice you have to make and there is no clear cut answer between what to choose and it all comes down to your needs and availability. We will now be discussing some features about both grills and give you the pros and cons of both for you to decide.

Propane Gas Grill

This is a type of gas that can be stored in a gas cylinder for use and portability. The pros about using this kind of gas grill is that you are not bound to keep it one place and can move both the cylinder and grill wherever you like. It is also cheap to get and easily available. The problems I feel with this type are safety and inconvenience. I personally do not support the idea of having a gas container near me for personal fears which I believe a lot of people share as well. The thought of it blowing up or leaking due to a faulty seal or just general carelessness scares me so I personally would never want to get one myself. Another thing that can be irritating is running out of the propane just when you are about to cook or are in the middle of it. Then you will have to go to the store and get it and ruin your experience along the way.

Natural Gas Grill

The problem with natural gas grills are that they well obviously need natural gas and it is usually not easy to find in a form that is easily available for purchase. You might have to get a gas connection connected to the grill from your houses gas connection and that will certainly need a professional. If you are going to use your houses gas connection than also be prepared to keep it one place since portability is severely diminished by using natural gas grills.


Gas grills are operated on BTU’s which are known as British Thermal Units and are indicative of how powerful the best gas grill is. Propane gas grills are generally more powerful than natural gas grills so a preference of cooking style may make it easier for you to decide which grill do you want. Propane gas grills will usually give out more energy which means food will be cooked in a different manner so that is the main deciding factor in my opinion.
