Propane burners make an excellent addition for outdoor cooking, write John Willoughby and Chris Schlesinger. For example, they are great for pan frying, since the heat can be more easily controlled than with non-gas-powered grills. "Even if up until now you've been that cook who grills all year round and sneers at propane tanks, we are guessing that once you try this approach you're going to become that person who carries the tank to the hardware store every couple of weeks. Because with your turbo burner and your giant pan, you're set to cook for a crowd all summer," they write.
