Get Ready to Grill!
The very first thing that people think about when it comes to propane is a propane grill! Yesss! Those delicious and perfectly grilled meats and veggies with no nasty charcoal taste on them. These grills are as easy as click, click, click! It’s easy to control, and no hot spots! These are some great reasons to use a propane grill!
Spring is here and we are all ready for the fun warmer days! One of the great things that we can do to keep the inside of our homes cool on hot days is cooking outside. It is really great to conserve energy by doing all of your cooking outside. Not only are you conserving electricity by not using an indoor form of cooking, such a stove, a toaster oven or microwave, but you will also not have to run your air conditioner as much. Many models of propane grills come with a gas burner on the side so you can, infact, cook everything outside on your beloved grill! Many people who live in very warm climates cook outside all summer long!
Since we all love our propane grills so much it is important to know that you have lot of options when it is time to buy a new one. Since things are warming up we highly advise that you look into spring or summer sales at your local shops. We think that early spring is the perfect time to buy a new grill! Why you may ask? Because the sooner you get it the more use and fun you will have with it during this nice weather season! Call CoEnergy Propane to find out about sales and where you get the best propane and propane accessories.
People usually just think that you can only grill on a grill. But you can use a grill just like an oven. You can pretty much cook everything you can cook in an oven on a grill! Even some models of grill have a built in thermometer to tell you what the temperature is in your grill. Plus, you can use your handy dandy cast iron pots and pans on your grill. I personally love cooking with my Dutch oven on the grill. My foods come out perfectly every time!
Here are some great grill recipes!

A beloved happy hour classic, now being served at a campground near you. What better way to end the day outside than with a cold beer, warm campfire, and a big pot full of cheesy nachos?
1 tablespoon neutral flavored oil
1/2 lb tortilla chips
1 (7.75 oz) can El Pato hot tomato sauce, or equivalent
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 (14.5 oz) can black beans, drained
1 large avocado, cubed
4-5 green onions, sliced
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small lime, cut into wedges
Lightly oil the bottom of a large dutch oven, to prevent the nachos from sticking.
For the first layer, evenly spread 1/3 of the chips into the dutch oven, topped with 1/4 can El Pato, 1/4 can black beans, 1/4 cup cheese, and a handful of avocado, green onions, and cilantro. Repeat for the second layer.
For the third and final layer, use the remaining 1/3 portion of chips, 1/2 can El Pato, 1/2 can black beans, 1/2 cup cheese, and the remaining avocado, onion, and cilantro.
Cover the dutch oven and place on your grill for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Serve with the lime wedges and enjoy!
Grilled Hawaiian Bbq Chicken
Grilled Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken in Foil has the most amazing sweet and tangy pineapple barbecue sauce! It grills to perfection with sweet pineapple and delicious summer veggies!

1 15-ounce can pineapple slices (including juice)
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic
1 red bell pepper, cut into cubes
2 medium zucchini, sliced green onions, for garnish
Heat grill to medium heat. Cut 4 sheets, enough to wrap the chicken and veggies, of heavy duty foil.
Place chicken on center of aluminum foil and divide the veggies and add 2-3 pineapple slices into each packet.
In a bowl, whisk together bbq sauce, juice from the can of pineapple slices, soy sauce, and
Spread about 2 Tablespoons of the sauce on the chicken and make sure to reserve about ¼ cup.
Place chicken packets on to grill and grill for 13-15 minutes flipping at about 7 minutes.
To serve carefully open packets, baste with reserve sauce and garnish with green onions.
