Grills, grills and more grills is the topic today here on the program. I've got a very good friend, Russell Metzler from gas product services. I say good friend. Uh, because I've known him for a long time. It's got to be 12 years or so. Hi, Russell, how are you? Hey, how's it going? Yeah, it's great to see you. Uh, you're the gas product expert. It's in your name. Gas product services. Uh, before we get into the excitement of the seasonal grilling. Let's get a quick background on you. You've been in the gas product services business for three decades now. Right. That is correct. I was very young when I started this. Yeah. And it's, it's everything, gas outside of the appliances that are generally inside the home, outside of the gas fireplace. So, you know, the gas dryer and, and, uh, the gas stove and so forth. That's for the appliance person. You do the fun stuff briefly, give a quick overview about the different types of gas products you work on before we get into our topic today, which is, which is grills, grills and more grills. Yes. The fun stuff or the romantic stuff, as I like to say. So, uh, at gas product services we have gas grills, gas lights, gas logs in the fireplace and any kind of outdoor fire features like a fire pit or a fire bowl. Um, uh, those things can be automated or not. Um, we have different types of torches, uh, tiki torches, luau torches and all that stuff is on our website at gas product services dot com. Yeah. No, it's all there. So, when we're talking about grills today, I want to make sure everyone knew that you do a lot more than just gas grills. Ok. It's grilling season. We're in the springtime and I love our topic. Grills, grills and more grills. You do a lot of that this time of year, right? Every day. I'm talking to people about grills. They wanna, they wanna get a gas grill, they wanna fix their gas grill or update their gas grill. Um, so, yeah, that, that is all the rage this time of year for sure. So, if you're watching this and you're saying, well, I have a gas grill. I bought it the big box store six years ago and it's rusting out and all I have to do is I guess, get a new one. Um, maybe you should get a hold of Russell at Gas Product Services because he's got all kinds of options. If you still want to have a propane tank, he can help you out with that. But he's got some, also some real neat options with having, uh, you know what I call a permanent built-in gas grill. But he can also have portable ones too that, um, are in your yard that can still use the natural gas from your home. So there's different options. Right. Yeah, there's several different ways that, that can be done. We can, the, the, the old standby from way back when I first started this, everybody had a grill on a post on the edge of the patio. You just walk out the back door and over to the edge of the patio and there, the grill was standing there and you, and it was connected to your gas meter and you could, uh turn it on and cook and then go back inside. We still have the old fashioned style post mounted grills. We also have a complete line of stainless steel built in grills and those are usually incorporated into some type of a, uh, it's what we call out an outdoor kitchen. It's a structure that's built out in the patio of bricks or stucco or, and it has a count granite countertop usually and the grills are made to slide into that. Those same grills can also be installed or, or put on a cart. So then you can, uh, you don't have to have that structure. You just have this cart and it's on wheels and you can roll the grill around, uh, on the patio or out of the garage and onto the patio or whatever you wanna do. And those carts can be connected to your natural gas or they can have a propane tank. You know what I really love about? The option of using natural gas, is it? You always got it? It's kind of like using the electricity from your home versus solar or batteries. You're like, well, I wonder if my batteries are gonna work for this product. Same thing with gas because you've invited the family over for the Sunday picnic and you forgot that you're out of gas in your propane tank or row right. Now, what, uh, quickly, quickly go to the store or get a bunch of sticks and some leaves and, um, and, and start rubbing them together. Right. So that's not the option. We almost never run out of natural gas in the home. As a matter of fact, your power is much more likely to go out. Your cable is much more likely to go out than your natural gas line. Isn't that true? That is absolutely true. Uh, so far natural gass has been a very reliable source of energy. Yeah. No, absolutely. Hey, Russell, thank you so much for joining me today. Um, if you're interested in anything gas, but today we're talking about grills, grills and more grills. I'm telling you you need to upgrade what you have, especially if you have an older big box type product. That's on wheels. It's rusted out, start fresh. Russell will talk to you absolutely free on the phone and he'll also come out and take a look at it as well. Isn't that true? Absolutely. Give me a call. All right. All of Russell's contact information is located in the description of this podcast, including his phone number and direct links. Once again, Russell, thank you so much for joining me today on the program. Talk to you later, Joe.
