WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Rhino, the tank exchange brand of Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. (OTC: FGPR), is ready for summer! As Memorial Day kicks off the unofficial start of our season, we conducted a fun survey to find out more about America’s grilling preferences. Hundreds of Blue Rhino customers responded, and some of the results may surprise you!

  • 42% of respondents say steak is their favorite food to grill
  • 21% of people said they’ve tried grilling their dessert
  • 38% enjoy beer as their favorite beverage to drink while grilling
  • 61% say they’d rather host a barbecue instead of attending one
  • And more than 80% say they grill out all year long!

Survey respondents further said their favorite outdoor family game is corn hole, and that some of their secret grilling ingredients include brown sugar, garlic powder, and lemon pepper. Others told us they’ll never tell their secret ingredients!

As you gather with family and friends in your back yard this Memorial Day, we encourage you to take a moment to remember the true reason for the holiday – to honor the women and men who’ve given their lives in service to our country. “It is because of them that we are truly free, and Blue Rhino honors their service and sacrifice. We are proud to be a part of America’s family gatherings, both this holiday weekend and throughout the year,” said Chet Reshamwala, Vice President of Blue Rhino.
