Brought my grill from the U.S.

Propane delivery guy installed singapore valve fixture for about $100 sgd. when we arrived and ordered propane for the first time.

FYI... LP canisters are delivered and installed for about $30. Old one taken away. Usually same day as phone call.

Day? :o Usually in the same hour... One of the great things about living in Singapore -- somethings are just so fast and convenient. I don't think we've ever waited more than 20 minutes.

Looking for BBQ solution

several of you mention gas suppliers who were able to convert your US BBQ's or provide singapore adaptors. Can someone please post the actual name of the suppliers? Thanks

nocalusa -- did anyone ever get back to you with names of the suppliers of US gas canisters for grills? I've been through a half dozen of these forums and the only two suppliers mentioned have numbers that no longer work! Would love some input if you received any! Thanks.

bbq gas

Postby MindyA » Sun, 08 Aug 2010 4:32 pm

Hi nat1107

Yes, we finally hunted down a gas supplier that could replace the valve on our little Weber Q (apparently this had a different type of valve than the traditional gas grills, so they had to remove and replace the entire apparatus). Bottom line is a gas supplier will come, put an adapter on your grill and hook you up with a gas tank (which they will come and replace when you need). A local bbq store recommended Tan Bros (www.tanbros.com.sg) for our Weber. We ended up going with Gashub Enterprise (6878 0072). But I think there are many gas suppliers that can help adapt your grill.

Good luck!

Sad. It really is a no brainer... one regulator spliced into your rubber hose.

Thanks! Even though this is a year old.

Just called that #, they are taking away my natural gas grill and will convert to LPG in 1 to 2 days for a couple of hundred bucks. Bargain, and great service.

All suppliers deliver. Just do a quick online search call the number and they will be with you in 20 mins max. They can change fitting too if you need it. There are two sizes of fittings.

That's because there are two types of gas bottles... Mobil and Esso, I think. The regulator found on the grayish bottles (Mobil, I think) offers a somewhat larger flow capacity, although the only time this made a difference for me was doing deep fried turkeys.

I've been using Esso with my Deep Fry rig with no real problems either and I believe I bought the same burner you were using. I've not tried the mobile gas, though I might when the Esso Bottle runs out.

SMS - primarily, you can get oil up to temperature faster, but as you know, it then needs to be turned down anyway.
