if the natural gas is plumbed into the building by a utility co. ,why not?
if you have to have a propane tank installed ,you also risk running out!!and waiting for a refill(depending where you operate ) might take awhile,
investigate these points
i dont think either one burns cleaner or better ,ill check that out
ditto to miKe's comment. I'm using NG because it was here. If I move the roasting operation up in the woods the only option would be Propane.
Most roasters come plumbed "out of the box" for NG.
I have no gas line in my place...
Oops..forgot. Tell your roaster manufacturer you'll be using propane - the jets & valves must be set forthe higher pressure in propane.
Nice Call Dave.
Some of this may be repetative but her it is anyway. It all depends on what is available, but some diferances to consider are: Natural gas gives 100,000 btu/therm compared to propane which gives 92000 btu/gal +-. Natual gas costs considerably less (at least in my area) than propane. Both burn about as efficiently and both need the same amont of maintenance.
Taking these points into consideration natural gas is a better value, but again it all depends on what is available.
Make sure you order your equipment accordingly if the equipment is used find out if it can be converted, most equipment can be.
