Natural Gas VS propane Grill
A: As you might guess, natural gas comes from underground petroleum deposits. It’s captured as-is and sent to your home, usually through a piping system that’s run by a local utility company. Propane, on the other hand, is another type of natural fuel that goes through a distillation and treatment process before being put in those handy tanks that can be hooked up to a grill.
In terms of cooking techniques, you’ll find them pretty similar. A difference to note is that propane actually burns at a higher temperature than natural gas. Yep, the stuff in the tank actually puts out more BTUs than the same amount of natural gas. That’s why a grill would need to be retrofitted for natural gas if it isn’t made for that type of fuel. (A natural gas grill needs larger holes so that it can crank out the same heat as its propane brethren.)

There is no difference at all. An appliance has a btu rating placed upon it by the manufacturer. If the appliance is set up for one fuel or the other, the difference in inlet pressures and size of orifices, and sometimes different burners or controls compensate for the different fuel. The btu output should be the same, so cooking time will also be the same.
Neither of these fuels put "flavour" into the food like charcoal or wood does, but after a few uses you don't even notice the difference! I'll do without the carbon and other particulates that get into your food using charcoal or w…
