 Gas grill hook-up question
Author: Harley132 (GA)

I just bought a house that has a propane gas stove; there is a large propane tank (I think it has a regulator) in the yard to supply it. Underneath the house is a tee in the gas line. That branch pipe leads to a valve on the back deck that is obviously intended to supply a gas grill.

My question: Do I use the gas regulator supplied with a new grill or do I remove it when attaching that grill to the supply line?

Thank you.

you have to be careful here..
there are very specific regulations about hooking up a portable grill to a permanent gas supply.
for one, a quick disconnect is required. they want the grill chained to the ground as well.
if you have a gas grill and propane tank supplier in your area, they sell kits (with instructions) for doing what you want legally and safely. it will have all that you will need.
remember, if there is a fire or worse and explosion, your insurance company will laugh at you when you try to make a claim..

Packy, thank you very much; I had already decided I didn't need a second regulator and planned just to attach the grill hose to the house valve.

I'll take your suggestion to contact a propane tank supplier for an install kit. If I can't find one, I'll at least use a quick disconnect.

The first question should be whether this unit is designed for LP gas, or natural gas?
