3 Tips on Getting your Gas Cylinder ready for the Holidays

Holidays Summer is here and it’s time to get ready for your camping or beach holiday. There’s nothing better than enjoying a skottel braai with friends and family.

Gas is cheap, convenient and easy to use, unlike fixed electrical stove-tops or a wood/coal braai that requires making a fire each time.  

Here are 3 Ways to get your Gas Cylinder ready for the holidays:

  1. Supply and Safety
    Before you begin your trip, it’s important to ensure your gas bottle and skottel are in optimal condition for the holiday ahead.  There is nothing worse than not having gas available when you’re about to start cooking! Have your gas bottle filled and checked for leaks before you start hitting the road and  make sure to properly weigh it to make certain it’s full.
  2. Cleaning and Maintenance
    A dirty gas cylinder, skottel braai and attachments can be a safety hazards, which is why regular cleaning and maintenance should be a top priority.  To remove the grease, oil and other dirt from your gas cylinder, clean the affected areas with a weak soapy solution, making sure to rinse properly and dry thoroughly before use. For the braai grid and additional accessories, clean with warm water and some dish-washing liquid.
  3. Pack all the Accessories
    Check you have all the necessary attachments for the gas-braai, from the burner and cooking plates to the gas bottle itself.  It’s important to know the state of your cooking equipment and all the accessories you will need before leaving home, so you can easily replace anything.  There is a wide range of fantastic accessories readily available to suit your favourite dishes and cooking techniques. 

    Get ready to enjoy your freshly-filled gas bottle for hours of culinary delight,  indulging in all your favourite foods, no matter where you go. With enough gas on-tap and a good imagination, there’s nothing you can’t enjoy with friends and family this summer.
