FAQ

What is the difference between butane and propane?

A gas barbecue works on butane, propane or a mixture of these two types of gas. The difference is the boiling point; the temperature at which it changes from liquid to gas and vice versa. At a lower temperature, gas becomes liquid and therefore unusable for your barbecue. With butane this boiling point is around 0°C and with propane at about -42°C. This makes Butane unusable for a winter barbecue or for use at high altitudes however, it is more affordable and more efficient than Propane.

Where do I leave my empty gas can?

After use, you can dispose of your empty gas can or cartridge with the residual waste in the gray container or hand it in as scrap iron at the recycling center in your area. 

The gas flow of my PowerPak has stopped. What can I do?

The PowerPak is secured against leaking. When the gas valve of the PowerPak is opened while not being attached to a barbecue, it automatically blocks the gas flow. The PowerPak has to be reset (outdoors);

  • Turn off the gas supply of the PowerPak.
  • Unscrew the hose of the PowerPak (with supplied wrench).
  • Insert a blunt object in the gas outlet. This eliminates the pressure in the gas pressure regulator.
  • Screw on the hose again.

NOTE: Before the gas valve on the PowerPak is opened it must be connected to a device.

How long can you store a gas bottle/cartridge?

As long as the bottle/cartridge and the tap/connector look good, no rust on the bottle/cartridge or corrosion of the copper, it is good to use them

How long does an 11kg gas bottle last?

Every gas cylinder needs to be inspected every so often. The approval period is at least 10 years, although it is longer for some gas cylinders. You can usually find the re-inspection date on a ring under the gas tap or on a label.

Which gas do I use for my gas barbecue?

Our gas barbecues will run from either Propane or Butane, or a mixture of them.

How do I connect my Safari Chef HP?

The Safari Chef HP runs directly on a gas cartridge. This is simply screwed under the appliance. You can start barbecuing right away! Would you like to connect your HP to a gas bottle? Then you can use the Adapter Set HP to LP.

How long can I barbecue on gas?

We are regularly asked how long the BBQ works on a gas cartridge, gas canister or a gas bottle. This depends on a number of things:

  • The type of gas cartridge, gas can or gas bottle you use
  • The type of BBQ you use; a large barbecue naturally consumes more gas than a small model because they often have a larger gas burner with a more powerful flame
  • Weather conditions; cold weather consumes more gas than warm weather; you need more power (and thus gas) then
  • The position of the gas tap; do you grill on full gas, medium or on the lowest setting

To give you an indication, the table below shows how long a barbecue works on average on a gas canister/gas cartridge or gas bottle.
