Returnable Propane Alert
We do everything in patrols in our troop so the largest bottles we use are the small disposable ones but I know a number of troops around our area use 20lb propane bottles for their cooking at summer camp.

The National Propane Gas Association has issued an alert to warn folks about inspecting the propane bottles they get when exchanging them at refill stations. It seems propane cylinders are being used in the manufacturing of Meth to store anhydrous ammonia. This can corrode the brass and possibly cause an explosive failure.

So, be sure to check propane cylinders you pick up for camp. See NPGA Alert for details.
