Take a deep breath: do you smell that? The savory smell of chicken and vegetables on the grill? If you’re like many people throughout the Maryland and Washington, DC area, the sounds and smells of summer barbeques are one of your favorite things about the warm weather.

If you grill a lot during the summer, you’ve probably experienced a few of the hassles of backyard grilling: smoke blowing in your eyes from the charcoal grill, or your propane tank suddenly running out of gas when you’re grilling for 20 people (and then lugging the thing to and from the hardware store!). But did you know that there’s a way you can avoid all of these issues! Not many people know this, but it’s possible to hook your grill directly into your home’s natural gas supply. Imagine it – consistent heat, perfectly cooked steaks and absolutely none of the hassle!

How to Hook Up Your Gas Grill

If you have a propane grill, the first step to hooking up your grill to your home’s natural gas supply is converting it to a natural gas grill. When you’ve done this, you can connect a fitting to your natural gas line and then connect it to the grill.

While it is technically possible to do this on your own, most grill manufacturers advise against it and many will void your warranty if you try to do it yourself. In addition, it is important that your grill is hooked up exactly right – if any natural gas leaks out and you try to fire up the grill, you could be in for a dangerous surprise!

If you love grilling in the summer and you want to experience the ease and convenience that comes with having your gas grill hooked directly into your home’s natural gas system, call James A. Wheat & Sons today – we can connect your gas grill so you can cook outside without any hassles!
