refilling little green propanes - SHNOZZLE

Hey - does anyone do this? It looks simple, would save the needless trashing of the bottles, and save a couple of bucks too. Just wondering if anyone has one and has experience with doing this?

No. And how it saves money escapes me. You still have to buy the gas.

PS since you use the small burners, maybe you need a big tank that you run lines to the cookers from.

They work great. I use an adapter I got from Amazon. Just don't overfill it. If you put the 1 lb cylinder in the fridge or freezer before filling, the temperature difference will allow much more to transfer.

They cost $4-5 new and maybe $1 to refill, so that's pretty simple math on how it's saving money.

The fridge is a good idea...I've never had too much luck, more of a pain than anything else..I think its supposed to work better if you fill as a liquid rather than gas..

Yeah they work great-- harbor freight sells them too. Freeze your bottle first-- make a big difference. Warm gets to about 65-70% of weight, frozen gets to over 90%. Super simple.
