"Once again I defer to the good people of the forum for your assisatance. I'm needing a small propane cylinder for a Weber Q portable gas grill. I will have the adapter that's offered for a 20 lb. cylinder.

My questions - What smaller cylinders are available for convenience? Where might I start my look to find them? What prices I may expect to pay in relation to the 20 lb. tank? And finally, do these smaller tanks fit the 20 lb. adapter?

I see Cabela's sell the 4.25 lb. for $40. Is this a reasonable price? (seems pricey but I know you pay for convenience) Can I get through a tailgate session with this size or would you folks recommend a larger one?"

It all depends on how much propane you need. They sell small disposable 1 lb tanks at Walmart for about $2.50, you don’t need the adapter for it and it’ll last you about 2 hrs.

We actually sell 14lb. propane tanks which would work great for you. You can find them on e-bay by either searching for that size tank or looking up the advantage gas equipment store. Hope it helps!

Princess Auto offers an 8lb tank for around $30.
They will ship to both USA and Canada.
