Is Santa Barbara Ice and Propane on Milpas St out of business?  It appears that they suddenly closed their doors, took down signs, locked the gates, and there's a For Lease sign on the building.  Phone just gets an answering machine.

Related question:  Where's an inexpensive place to get a BBQ propane tank refill?

I got my RV propane tank filled at the Shell station at the corner of Fairview and Calle Real. I'm sure they'd do a BBQ tank too.

I had a tank filled there two weeks ago or so.

I've used the 76 station on Fairview south of Calle Real. You can also do a swap of your old cylinder at any hardware store and convenience stores. The cost is pretty much the same as a refill. I've taken to doing this swap-out as it is quicker and easier than waiting for an attendant.

Propane is available at many locations! But where can I get block and dry ice?

I took my empty tank to SB GAS on Carrillo and Bath. The guy supposedly filled it but it was empty again after only a couple of uses. I now go to Santa Barbara Home Improvement Center.

San Andres Hardware is a great little locally owned store - helpful staff and they seem to just about have everything the average homeowner needs in their inventory.

Propane tanks being discussed are the 20# tanks (because they obviously hold 20# when full). When you exchange an empty tank for a "full" one there is a small print sign or label stating "net weight 15 pounds" meaning that you're getting a 3/4 full tank. If you take your tank to a bulk supplier, you will get 20#.
