In my Michigan hometown shown here, we sometimes call these LP tanks a Pig. I don’t know where the usage of the word pig began to describe these tanks, but it’s been around a very long time. Some of you know that I cleaned up the Weber grill yesterday. I went to the hardware store this morning for a new pig. They had just one left.
I paid $21.66 for a refilled, used tank, and headed home. Later today, I was going to grill up some chicken, but when I screwed the hose onto the pig, the hose would not make a proper seal with the pig. Damn. I drove back to the hardware hoping that the store had had a delivery of fresh propane. Nope!
The store refunded my cash, gave me an empty tank which is normal, and home I went. Tomorrow, I’ll be on a pig hunt, I’m not sure who else sells LP gas around here but I’ll find those little twenty pound swines somewhere!
