    Default Transporting a Grill

    Is it possible to transport a propane grill safely laying down? We've got to move a grill that's fairly good sized and wondering if it would work to lay it on it's back inside a vehicle.

    You can lay the grill down just fine, barring the mess it might make. But, don't lay your bottle on it's side. If it started leaking on it's side, you'd be losing liquid rather than gas, and it's about 300X more explosive as a liquid.

    Thanks for the info, Wirenut.

    I keep my grill pretty clean, I try to clean it out after each use, so the mess wouldn't be too bad. Obviously I'd unhook the tank and store that separately before transporting. I didn't know if having the grill on its back would affect anything. It'll be in the back of an SUV and strapped down tight before take off.

    I haul mine laying down all the time and have never had any issues.

    I took another look at the innards and it looks like everything will make the ride just fine. Thanks for the info, guys!

    So where are we grilling at? Sounds like fun....LOL I've laid it down in the back of the truck just so it wouldn't move too much and I didn't have rope and it was fine...
