    My first smartphone was a Galaxy 1. The charging port crashed when the phone was one year and one day old. I was in the middle of a two year phone contract, the manufacturers warranty was for 1 year. I had to pay off the contract and sign up for a new one.

    @SonVolt,

    low flow across all burners? That’s indicative of a bad regulator, not just air in the line. Can you separate the line at the appliance to see if there’s any trash present? Could be something simple like the diaphragm is stuck on the regulator after you turned the LP back on
    Agreed...lp regulators where I am go to hell every few years

    Ditto here with frying fish, crawfish and crab boils. The new ones have a safety feature that the gas pressure has to be slowly applied or the diaphragm inside the regulator won’t operate properly. This too could be his issue. The fix is to disconnect the fuel source, reconnect and slowly open the valve

    Its probably common sense but also make sure all your burners are off. If they arent the regulators sense a leak and go into a low mode also. Ive had both of these issues with my pizza oven opening the valve too fast and not having it all the way off and both ways it just gives a minimum amount of gas.

    Anyone know why a gas range would have a very low flame? I had to turn our gas line off at the house yesterday (LP) and after I turned it back on everything worked fine except the gas range. Just getting very low output. 

    Does that mean there's air in the line? If so, how do you purge it? I've let stove run for 20+ minutes and it didn't seem to help. Maybe my regulator's going bad? 



    is it still cold out, ive had it freeze at the tank with the stove having low output, gas company upgraded everything at the tank.

    Making the award winning Salado brisket chili for the first time. I’m going to share it with some neighbors that have been without power for a couple of days. 
    We had our leftovers of that last night.  I swear that recipe gets better on the second or even third days.  The flavors just have even more of a chance to infuse.

    I would recommend halving the amount of chile powder and cayenne.  You can always add more back in at the end, to suit your tastes.

    Currently 25F. The tank is a 1000gal underground and everything is still getting sufficient gas - water heater, furnace etc.

    shouldnt be a problem with an underground tank, my above ground ones face a north wind and 5 degrees would do it.  was strange though, i didnt notice the boiler or water heater having a problem, just the big burners on the stove top.  cant imagine getting a bill all at once for a 1000 gallon tank, right now im going thru 500 bucks every other week with this cold wind lately

    It costs me ~$500-700 a year to top it off in the summer.  This cold spell here is unusual so we don't typically burn that much gas during the year.

     I have propane being delivered today.  Price is up 13% since November.  I usually go through about 800 gallons per year.  Cold snaps definitely increase my burn rate.  Nov-March are about 600 of those gallons.

    @JohnInCarolina - my SRF goodie box was originally scheduled for today.  With the friggin weather I hope it just gets here at some point although I was alerted that it would be delayed.
    No worries though as I had a Porter Road goodie box arrive last week.  
    Enjoy the cooks and eats.

    Luckily it is being delivered during epic cold, which increases the chances of it still being frizen when it arrives.

    One year I had two Black grade briskets delivered a few days late in 110 deg weather.  They were around 50 deg and thawed when I got them.

    What the!?  Seriously sucks.  They sell them all for less than $1k and he pays $14k to get his trucks fixed.
