You’re welcome. (and sorry we can’t really help with any other ahem, gas issues either. But I hear charcoal is good for that.)

“It’s very easy to make sure gas bottles are safe for the BBQ and campsite but a lot of people forget the basics of the simple maintenance checks they need to do.
“Most households use their BBQs and portable gas appliances more frequently during summer, so it’s essential consumers ‘take five’ for regular safety checks to keep your friends and family safe when you next throw a snag or prawn on the hot plate.”
Follow these tips to ensure there are no gas related incidents at your BBQ’s this holiday season.
