Hank Hill - King of the Hill

Those of you, who were fans of the popular American animated television series King of Hill, will no doubt fondly remember the shows lead protagonist Hank Hill, a hard working family man from Texas.

Hank was the assistant manager at the local branch of Strickland Propane, where he sold propane gas and propane accessories.

A lot of us will identify with the three times winner of ‘Propane Salesman of the Year Award’ during the summer months, when we’re hanging around in the backyard, drinking the odd beer with our family and friends, whilst leaning over burgers and sausages, sizzling away on the barbecue.

Speaking the beloved barbeque, Hank Hill always had something to say about the popular method of cooking during the warmer months of the year “Strickland Propane, taste the meat, not the heat”, a statement many of us head barbeque chef’s will agree with.

Follow Propane Protocol

Whether or not you’re familiar with Hank Hill and acumen for the propane industry, you will know that using propane is something that requires a few safety precautions. The main safety precautions, as outline by Calor Gas are as follows.

  • Do not subject the gas bottle to heat – this could increase the pressure inside and exceed the safe limit.
  • Do not try to disconnect or unscrew a regulator from any cylinder if the flame doesn’t go out.
  • Never store or use gas bottles in cellars or below ground level.
  • Always store gas bottles at least 2 metres away from un-trapped drains, unsealed gullies or cellar openings.
  • Avoid storing Propane gas bottles indoors.
  • Never use Propane-fuelled appliances inside residential properties.

Hank Hill knew that storing propane gas cylinders was no joke and so do we at Asgard. That’s why we have gas bottle storage solutions to suit all of your needs.
