Camping is one of America’s most beloved outdoor vacationing activities with over 40 million Americans a year packing up to enjoy the great outdoors. While the goal for most people is tocamping tent disconnect from the busyness of everyday life, no one wants to disconnect from comfort! For your next camping trip, we recommend these five Modern Gas essentials.

Camp Chef Grills

Camp Chef griddles, pellet grills, smokers and stoves offer you a better way to cook outdoors – empowering you to cook what you want, where you want. The Flat Top Grill has quickly become our favorite item thanks to the easy change from griddle to grill grate! This means pancakes and sausage for breakfast and juicy burgers for dinner – all on one grill.

Bayou Classic Fish Cooker

You don’t have to wait until you arrive home to fry up your catch of fish. Our fish cookers are durable and lightweight for easy travel. Throw in some fresh-cut potatoes and your favorite hushpuppy recipe and dinner is ready!

Renegade Portable Gas Fire Pit

There are several reasons to use a propane fire pit while camping: campsites do not allow wood-burning fires during dry seasons, fire-wood can be a hassle to transport and some states do not allow the transport of firewood across their state lines. The Renegade Portable Gas Fire Pit provides the comfort of a traditional fire pit but more compact and easily transported – perfect to gather around and roast s’mores!

YETI Coolers and Accessories

Keeping your food safe to eat is important during your camping trip. Our YETI coolers are the best at keeping cold foods cold and hot foods hot. From hard and soft coolers to drinkware, YETI gets the job done! And an added perk – YETI coolers can be accessorized with bear-proof locks to ensure your food isn’t taken by a pesky bear.

Propane Tanks & Cylinders

One of the most important details to take care of before heading out on your camping adventure is to make sure you have all the propane your equipment requires. Our knowledgeable and experienced staff will gladly help you determine which propane tanks and cylinders you need.

Basic Safety Tips for Using Propane

Christmas may be gone but Jack Frost will be with us for a few months – and that means increased propane usage. At Modern Gas, we are committed to providing our customers with the best services and products available. We operate according to carefully enforced rules, regulations and procedures which are monitored by our trained experts. Propane is Eco-friendly and readily available in the United States making it the most universal of residential fuels. While propane is safe, reliable and clean, there are a few safety measures that must be taken.

It is important that you educate yourself and your family on the basic safety tips of propane.

Among these tips include:

  • Make sure you are familiar with the smell of propane so that you recognize a leak. In simple terms, propane has the smell of sulfur – think eggs!
  • If you smell gas:
  1. Immediately shut off all flames or spark-producing appliances.
  2. Leave the area immediately.
  3. Shut off the gas.
  4. Report the leak to Modern Gas by calling 229-435-6116 or call 9-1-1 if a technician is not readily available.
  5. Do not return to the area until a qualified service technician determines that it is safe.
  • Know the symptoms. While you can smell propane, carbon monoxide is an odorless gas. Be aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning which include a headache, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath and nausea. Call 9-1-1 immediately if anyone in your family exhibits symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Maintain your appliances with regular inspections by our trained technicians. Do not try to modify or repair any part of your propane gas appliance – leave that to us!
  • Only attempt to relight a pilot light if you are properly trained. Call Modern Gas to perform services or maintenance to your appliance.
  • Don’t run out of gas! It is important that your propane tank remain filled for reliability, efficiency, and safety.
