Newbie here, reading all sorts of great advise on this wonderful board.

Just got a Weber Genesis 320, 48,000 BTU propane gas grill back in April, and man this thing goes through propane. I've been through two 20lb tanks so far, grilling about 2X per week for an hour or so at a time. Is that about right for one of these things, or should I be concerned about a leak or something? There is no smell and the grill has no problem getting hot... it gets up to 550 in ten minutes or so.

Any insight is welcome.
Thanks for the response, Captain. I called Weber customer service and they said I should expect 18-20 hours out of a 20 lb tank. I don't think I'm getting that much, unless there's a Phantom Griller firing it up when I'm not home, but I'll keep track next tank.
