  1. 1. Do you turn the valve on the propane tank off after every use?

    • Yes, I don't know why.

    • No, the grill's valves work just fine, no need to turn it off at the tank too.

you?

 

note: this is for gas grill users, hence the thread title. I don't care if you use a big green momo or buy $20 charred mammoth bones to grill on.

I typically don't, but it's never a bad idea. I probably should.

Why wouldn't you?

I can't think of a reason to leave it on and can think of a few to turn it off.

I do if I remember which is only 25% of the time. When the thing was new ~ 2 years ago, I remembered 99% of the time.

 

I don't notice any loss of propane from leaving it on however.

And yet I'll still comment...charcoal tastes better. Otherwise, use your oven.

I turn it off every time. I left it on once and almost blew up my girlfriend when she went to light it.

I turn it off, but when I forget to then I turn it the wrong way and think it's broken because it won't light. I'm retarded like that.

I turn it off for sure because I'm paranoid like that.

 

At my new house (8 mos or so) I now have birds trying to build a nest in the grill. Never seen this before. This of course is when I forgot to put the cover on.
