How to Convert a US Gas or Propane Grill For Use in France

I stay in France and once I moved from the US to France, I introduced my Weber Grill. Within the US I grilled all Spring, Summer time and Fall. I used to be used to having a big yard and BBQ events. In France, I knew I used to be going to have a terrace so I introduced the grill.

I went to a retailer within the middle of Toulouse referred to as Midica. I discover it typically dearer than different shops however since it’s within the middle, the place I stay, you do not have to drive, and it’s simple to get to, I went there. I needed to ask how I may convert my US grill so it could work with the butane canisters right here in France. I bumped into an issue. Messieur, it’s in opposition to the regulation, blah, blah, blah, and on he went like all good French folks. I stated principally that I’m comparatively helpful so I might don’t have any drawback making a reference to a brand new hose so the gasoline would work. The worker should have repeated 10 occasions that it was in opposition to French regulation and so forth.

It’s only a mechanical factor no? A hose brings gasoline from the canister to the grill, it’s both on or off, and the regulator regulates the strain. A gasoline grill just isn’t like a posh piece of apparatus.

Lastly I stated, here is my deal with, why do not you name the police if it would make you’re feeling higher, however will you present me the place the hoses are? He acted so offended however in the long run he confirmed me the place all the pieces was that I wanted and even informed me he would throw within the regulator at no cost if I purchased the canister of gasoline. Nicely you do not truly purchase the canister of gasoline, you pay for the contract, which is a deposit, then pay to fill it every time. On the finish, you get your deposit again if you return the canister.

1. take away hose that connects grill to canister

2. join gasoline contract at native ironmongery shop, do not forget the regulator

3. purchase alternative rubber hose of right measurement to be used with new gasoline canister
