Question about Barbeques Galore Capt'n Cook 3-Burner 175721 (NG) Grill
I have a Capt'n Cook gas grill that states to use natural gas only. I connected a propane tank to the grill and it lights/ignites.
Question...is it ok/safe to do this?
Please respond asap.
It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm
Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.
Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.
