Well, I'm more of a theoretician you see, so it's not likely I'll be drilling anything.

Natural gas has some drawbacks. The gas supply at your house is at such a low pressure that you really need a specialty burner to make it worth while. Here is what I mean:

The low pressure means that the flame is susceptible to wind, so a wind screen would be in order. A friend of mine has this model and it seems to leave a lot of black soot behind, but perhaps he just isn't getting efficient combustion. I'll stick with propane.

Prosit!

normally i'll spray my tank with water while i'm boiling - and note the condensation line on the tank...but weighing seems more acurate. if i did run out in the middle of a boil - it would take me about 5 minutes to get back to the boil. there's a rhino tank dispenser on just about every corner around these parts.
