20-pound propane tanks have a variety of applications, but they’re primarily used to power standard home-based propane BBQ grills that families use for outdoor cookouts and camping.
When full, these 20-pound tanks have 4.6 gallons of liquid propane in them. On a medium-sized grill, this will usually last for 18-20 hours of cooking on high heat. Larger, more powerful grills will burn through the tank much faster, typically lasting only half as long.
If you need to rent a grill too, be sure to check out our 6’ x 2’ Propane Barbeque Grill. With four firebox sections and a mobile base, it’s ideal for events that require high volume cooking.
