Propane for Camp Cooking –  What You Need to Know

Propane is an important fuel source for many camp cooks. It is ideal for car or RV camping. There are better choices for backpacking or other actives where weight is a concern. That will be a topic for another video.

DISCLAIMER

The information I am presenting is based on my personal experience and opinion. I am not an expert in these matters. There are many important safety practices to consider when storing and working with propane. I do not have time to cover all of them here. Here are some links that cover propane safety in greater detail.
