  • How to Build A Fire Pit Kit with a Propane Tank

    Designing a Propane Fire Pit

    Propane gas fire pits are becoming more common in residential settings given their convenient design. However, running new gas lines can be prohibitively expensive and requires professional installers to ensure a satisfactory outcome. For this reason, many consumers choose to fuel their fire pits using a standard propane tank.

    At Spotix, we’re often asked how long a propane tank will fuel a typical backyard fire pit. This answer will vary based on the size of your tank as well as the BTU rating of the fire pit burner. To calculate approximate burn times for yourself, we’ve put together this helpful guide. Consider grills as a point of reference, as these calculations will work for propane grills as well.

  • Seared Tuna on a Himalayan Salt Block

    Seared Tuna

    A perfect option for cold weather grilling

    It's late November, Thanksgiving is looming and the winter weather has arrived early. But those of us who love to grill will still find a way to get outside and cook up something special, even if the weather is less than ideal.

    With that being said, the weather does pose a challenge--the colder temps inhibit the high heat searing we all love from our grills. An easy solution? A salt block. Salt blocks are great to use any time of the year, indoors or out, but they're perfectly suited for these colder temperatures and to use on your grill. Think cast iron--the lovely black pans that last for generations and are so heavy they just sear so well. The same principle holds true with a salt block--it's so heavy that it retains heat extremely well, which in turn allows it to sear extremely well.

    Among the many wonderful searing companions, tuna is one of my favorites. Increasingly popular among restaurants now, a sesame seared tuna is extremely easy dish to pull off - served with its usual friends: soy sauce & wasabi. All in all, it's quite delicious, and if you butcher your tuna right you can get make some tuna tartare as an appetizer.

  • How to Winterize Your Grill

    Overview

    When fall rolls around and the cold weather of winter is looming, it’s important for grill owners to be prepared by winterizing your grill. Many of you, I’m sure, are like me and grill year-round, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also prepare your grill for lower temperatures and nasty weather. Most of us are familiar with how corrosion (rust) can degrade the performance and lifetime of your grill - while high quality materials like 304 stainless steel are very corrosion resistant, that doesn’t mean they’re impervious to the elements. Not only does moisture stress metals, but grease build-up can create pressure points where corrosion can build and spread.
