    Gas bottle generally don;t just blow up.

    But, yes, Oz fittings will work.

    I would just avoid gas altogether not worth the risk of explosion.
    We often cook with charcoal when visiting mum.

    The gas in Chaiyaphum is no less safe than anywhere else and the fittings here are, in my opinion at least, every bit as good as is available elsewhere in Thailand. I know this as we use gas to cook with on our farm in Chaiyaphum and I'm still alive to tell the tale.

    If you really do need a gas detector/shut off valve then I'd suggest you bring one with you. They probably are available somewhere in Chaiyaphum town, but I haven't got a clue where and I suspect you'll spend a fair amount of time tracking one down.

    As a matter of interest what do your wife's family use at the moment for cooking? If they have gas and have so far managed to avoid being engulfed in a massive fireball whilst knocking up their deep-fried grasshoppers then I'd reckon the chances of your survival should be quite good.

    A few other pointers for you. Its the end of the rainy season so there are lots of snakes about at the moment, and scorpions that like to hide in shoes. Also you'd better watch out for the village water - even the local bottled stuff. Best to boil it first, although that would mean using the gas which clearly carries its own risks. It's all deeply vexing.

    Perhaps you could bring your own water too? You can probably pick up some packs of dehydrated water before you leave Oz?

    You can always try a design a safe stove might be more efficient as well.
    An electric kettle and mama noodles is pretty safe.

    Do you reckon you could run those on buffalo poo KT?

    Other than the hanging around at the back end waiting to collect it part, I'd imagine buffalo poo to be a fairly safe and readily available fuel source?

    I only mention it as when I was in India I used to see little huts that villagers made to store their cow poo. Having stacked it all up they then made the walls and carved pleasing patterns in them.



    It might perhaps provide a nice project for the OP whilst on holiday in Chaiyaphum? As might be evidenced by the length of my replies on this thread, there's not a lot else to do up here...

    If you mean the low pressure regulators with a gauge and a safety cut out/reset button then the answer is yes you can buy them locally.

    The standard low pressure regulators without gauge or safety cut out work fine though as all the PTT gas cylinders are installed with a safety valve anyway.

    Due to safety concerns Buffalo dung has a low energy density and incomplete combustion produces harmful emissions.
    So i think best leave the poo alone.

    actually suspect you are being a just a teenie bit anal and paranoid mate....propane gas explosions are pretty rare ..caused mainly by faulty fittings,connections or appliances and accumulation of escaped gas in confined space. Propane is heavier than air so will accumulate in low confined spaces.

    From a practical safety point of view you could just keep gas turned off at tank between uses (most Thais do this). Easy and good practice to regularly use a sponge or rag with soap solution and of course your nose to detect any leaks..... forget gismos..they also fail.

    Buffalo poo works only if you're cooking cow pat.

    You can buy safety valves in most little towns. In Sangkha here the local miscellaneous shop has them. The really good ones are available at HomePro and Thai Watsadu.

    I nundah-stand your concern but think you have nundah-researched the danger posed by cooking with gas. Yes Thailand is a nundah-developed country but one of the joys is that it is nundah-regulated. This being said there is no nundah-supply of safe gas bottles.
    The nundah-lying problem with propane as has been said is that it is heavier than air so collects in low spots like nundah the house. If the bottle is out in the open there will be no problem even if as you suspect the equipment is nundah-maintained. Thais are not nundah-nourished and cook a lot with gas. Yes some food is nundah-cooked but that is a health problem not an accident waiting to happen.

    So now you have maybe a better nundah-standing of the situation, I believe your journey which maybe nundah-taken without concern. Yes your in-laws are nundah-paid but mostly because they are nundah-productive. Just go nundah-dressed so as not to attract attention and nundah-spend on everything. Then they are less likely to ask you to nundah-write any projects they may have.

    (sorry I'm not as good as slap)
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
