It’s summer in Michigan and naturally we want to enjoy the beautiful weather while it’s here.  Which makes this the perfect time to get out of the kitchen and fire up the outdoor grill!    When it comes to outdoor grilling, there’s no question that natural gas should be your fuel of choice, especially if you’re cooking for a crowd.

Here’s 4 reasons why:

  • Natural gas offers quick heat, no waiting for coals to get hot.
  • Unlike propane, you never have to worry about making a trip to the store to exchange a tank when you use natural gas.
  • A natural gas grill can reach 600 degrees in as quickly as six minutes, so you spend less time waiting for the grill to be ready. 
  • Cooking with an outdoor natural gas grill also costs only about one-sixth the cost of cooking with charcoal, and about one-third the cost of propane.

Adding natural gas to an outdoor space can do more than fuel a grill. Firepits and outdoor heaters are also great additions to help extend the use of your outdoor space.
