1. Is there a difference in the required pressure - HP or LP - that is needed to operate a canister/bottle type BBQ
2. I've been looking to convert my canister/bottle type BBQ to use a 3,5 or 7 Gal bottle. Where do I find (look for) the required parts to do this?

I GOT IT!!!! And it was almost too easy.

The 1st pictures shows the complete hookup, the next one is it broken down and the others are the actual connectors. They sell it as a standard item.

I do love easy!

If your BBQ uses a throw away canister.. All you need is the hose to connect to a luggable.

The Extend-a-flow type adapters (And the Extend=a=stay type) use a different hose, but work the same way far as the grill is concerned.

We did this and you have to take the regulator OFF the grill since the tank has a regulator. Don't know if this helps. If you need more I can send later.

The Extend-a-flow, extend-a-stay and stay-a-while all go between the tank and regulator and deliver roughly 100 PSI to the grill, thus you need a regulator at the grill.

Some folks tap the low pressure line post regulator, This is how many trailers with "optional grill" are set up at the factory.

I prefer the first method (High pressure to grill) because I have options.

Main tank
Luggable tank
Throwaway tank

If you modify your grill by removal of regulator, You can kiss those last two options by by.

Also, on a motor home with a mounted (Bolted on) tank instead of a trailer with a removable tank, The last two devices above (Stay-a-while and extend-a-stay) give me the option of using an external tank to charge the RV's propane system.. Handy when the big tank hits "E".
