If you love to barbecue, the thought of making sure you have enough charcoal or propane to last through a cookout can put a damper on your enjoyment. Why not hook up your barbecue or grill to your home's natural gas supply? This will solve the problem of messy charcoal, heavy propane tanks and smelly lighter fluid. You'll have one of the most advanced grills on the block – how's that for impressing Bob next door?
Hooking up your grill to your natural gas supply isn't hard, but it will require a licensed gas fitter to provide you with the proper instructions and installation.
