So far I have three 100lb propane tanks I bought used and had filled for the price of 1 new tank filled.
Then this year I plan on also getting a little wood stove or pellet burner for the other end of the house.
The only drawbacks to propane that I am aware of are a smell, and perhaps some soot. Both related to improper combustion. I expect that you will have that covered.

Propane is quite a bit more money than natural gas here, but I guess that's related to how much you use.

In THEORY there is no difference between Theory and Practice
