Do You Have Enough Propane to Grill?

How do you know how much grilling you can accomplish with the amount of propane in your propane tank? On average, a medium-sized grill on high heat will use approximately two pounds of propane per meal. That means you can get 18 to 20 hours of cooking time on a medium grill with a 20-pound propane tank. With a larger grill, that 20-pound tank may only last for roughly half the time (closer to 10 hours). The best way to make sure you’re always ready to grill is to have a backup cylinder ready to go.
