Connect a propane tank to a gas grill

With summer just around the corner make sure you are prepped and ready for all those barbeques by connecting the propane gas tank to your grill. With the hose on tight you'll be ready for those hotdogs and hamburgers.

If you are craving that flame-broiled taste but you are out of propane, follow this advice to heat up that grill in a snap.

You Will Need

* A grill with a gas connection
* A propane tank

Never light a grill with the cover closed. Always open the cover first.

Step 1: Remove empty tank

Make sure the gas valve is closed and unscrew the hose to remove the empty tank.

Step 2: Remove cover

Tear the perforated seal on the tank's bottle valve to remove the protective cover.

Bottle attachments vary. Refer to your grill's installation instructions.

Step 3: Secure gas hose

Connect the grill's gas hose to the new propane tank. Push the coupler into the valve and hand tighten the knob.

Step 4: Open the valve

Turn the bottle gas valve to the open position. Then light the grill and start cooking.

More than three out of four households in the United States own an outdoor grill.
