Okay I want to cook stuff on this would there be any barriers law wise to have this Coleman PerfectFlow InstaStart Portable Gas Grill this is the only example but the concept is what I am thinking the issue is a very small amount of propane. Only of course while I am down for a few hours of course would never rush put this next to anything they could melt or do damage to the company truck aside from the food smell obviously. I love stakes, pork chops, mushrooms, corn on the cob with a potato. With some my family recipe seasoning. The only concern I am asking about taking the propane if its a huge deal I will go with charcoal but never like the way charcoal tasted but I would enjoy it just have the reg food I like and would be healthier then anything in the truck stops just the way I prepare stuff.

When it comes to something like this if you have an inverter in your truck get a George Foreman grill. If you don't find maybe a truck stop that sells them or maybe a Wal-Mart that sells grills that plug into your 12 Volt port. I personally wouldn't recommend a prppane grill because of the potential fire danger that could occur in the truck.

Whichever way you go, make sure it is OK with your company.

ps. not to start a war but charcoal is superior in taste to propane to just about everybody. It is usually the quart of "charcoal fire starter" that ruins the taste of charcoal grilled food.

Nice advice ill keep note but what I am asking is the legal issue does anyone know for sure it is illegal to carry this with a very very small propane across state lines. If for certain its a yes then I will look other options the main reason I ask is the uses could be more then just a cookware purpose. I am tempted to ask a state trooper in Texas but wanted to ask yall first. I can make the propane as safe as a black box. I am only asking the legal issue.

That my sir is the my fav quote from is "Taste the meat, not the heat" king of the hill. I have cooked many whole pigs underground being the few exceptions cooking other then propane I can safely say I have my ancestors to giving me that cooking skill the flavor I make off that cannot be compared to charcoal or propane first and foremost, to say charcoal is better is like comparing ashes on a burger to a burger with natural seasoning because no matter what unless you fast cook which if you like tapeworm go for it only takes one time and you will never want to do it again. I may be younger then some my peers But I have been making food taste great alot longer then the average joe will do.

Truck stops sell single burner butane stoves. Some sell small charcoal grills. I just got a George Forman. (About $30 at Walmart) I'm loving it. Bacon eggs and cheese for breakfast and rib eyes for dinner. Will be trying different things in the future.

Robert, you might want to read This Former Conversation on this subject. Click on the link that is provided in the conversation. It's just something to consider. It's legal, but potentially dangerous.

Thanks, I read it sounds to me was never into details just thought he would wing it, first being dude was a smoker, 2nd they way he stored the propane was an unsafe manner, I have many more issues the info is very very limited just based on the info. First off in my case, I know how to put all kinds of fires I was trained for such things and how to prevent them. there numerous list I can go in fact reminds the dude should never have propane in his cab because of his past life choices. let us add on the top fact he couldn't smell the propane leak another major issue first would be a low sound along with a very very distinct odor so he had bad hearing and couldn't smell, okay have any of yall smoked in a truck, My uncle did when I was young he acted like he didn't give crap where his ashes went but would always look when they fell off so he could actually clean them later, hes not the only trucker smoker I know does that and he used to be an owner operator. I have an idea what happened. He sounds to me just a very very lazy person, not detailed no idea how he passed a medical dot but did let us go with it because his eyes are shot, cant hear, or smell. I could list more if I know more about the case like was there stuff blocking the path to exit did he have so much stuff in there he couldn't see far, regardless his are shot with depth perception. this is all just one scenario. I have two others well 3 but involves something really unrealistic from the reports.

Propane like anything improperly used can be very very dangerous if you never take it seriously you don't need to be around it most newer propane have a safety device on them or in them. That being said he should never have been in the Truck. I can tell you many stores or other means of cooking and involves most them around lighter fluid. there are many methods also to get the fluid out those bottles I will leave it at that.

Owner Operator:

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.
