Happy National Burger Month

Back to Blog List Page

Many of you may not know, but May is National Burger Month! AmeriGas wants you to celebrate it all month long by trying some great grilling recipes with your AmeriGas tank. Here are some interesting facts you may not know about the hamburger:

The hamburger originally came from Hamburg Germany 

The idea of placing the burger in the bun came from America 

Burgers were initially eaten quite raw until the 1880’s 

The English and the Irish were the first to cook burgers well done 

The Hamburger hall of fame is located in Seymour, Wisconsin 

Burgers account for about 40% of all sandwiches sold 

Make sure when you are grilling your delicious burgers you are outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Never grill or store a tank in any enclosed areas (including trailers, tents, houses and garages). Ensure that the grill is firmly in place. It should be stable enough not to be tipped over.
