So - after using my Blackstone a couple times, fugg the 1lb canisters. I have an extra 20lb tank to replace the one that runs out of gas while I'm cooking on the grill. I can use that instead but also bought an 11lb "squatty" tank for camping. Perfect. Lighter weight, fits in the toolbox, save big $$ on 1lbers.
Go to fill the 11 pounder at the garden/landscape store (like I do my 20lber's) and they act like they've never seen one. They say "we don't do those". I'm like W-T-H, it's got the same hardware as a 20 lb tank? So I ask for the manager to explain why. The Manager comes out and says, "oh yea, we can do those but it's the same price as the 20lb fill up". So naturally I ask, "For 1/2 the propane"?
Her answer" "yes, the price is $22 for "up to 20 lbs".
So I say, "Well that is certainly unfriendly" and walk away.
Then I call Home Depot. "do you REFILL tanks?" She says "yes". I head over and no, they only sell refilled tanks on exchange. And naturally, not 11lb tanks.
I finally call TSC much further away and vet it out before the trip. They are the only place in town that actually REFILLS a tank and I walked out full for $10.00.
I often plan my needs perfectly (as in the case of an 11lb tank for camping) but some dumbarsery always seems to get in the way.
