It's summertime and the steaks are ready to be grilled. One slight there enough propane in the tank? Here's how to check!

This has always been a mystery to me. You can always use the old fashioned way to figure our how much you have, but that never worked for me. Weigh a full tank and then weigh an empty tank, learn those two figures and then weigh your tank and do the math. But that seems to complicated to me. And I don't have one of those special pressure gauges.

But here's one simple way to check. It only takes a minute, and you don't need any special gadgets or tools. All you need is a glass of hot water.

Thanks to our friends at, figuring out how much propane is in the tank is now a piece of cake. Happy grilling!
