Propane connector

I have a propane grill/smoker with the regulator that connects to a 5 pound propane jug. What do I need to use the propane connection in the basement of the Berk?

I got a hose from a propane dealer with a quick connect.

Ken, I am sure you will hear from Dan. I followed his instructions which had links to all the necessary purchased parts, and it works beautifully. You will start with removing the grill's regulator since the Berk's propane outlet is low pressure.

Ken,
You would, as accumack stated, need a hose with a quick connect to connect to the valve in the basement. You would also need to remove the regulator from the smoker and get either a quick connect set up or just a connector to connect the hose to the smoker.

So the regulation is already handled on the coach ? All I need is some quick connectors for the coach and put one on the grill after removing the regulator on the grill ?

Thanks.

I'll look for the thread on doing this.

Yes, the propane output from the Berkshire tank is regulated.

Ken, I would have linked to my instructions but they were specifically for a Weber Q100. But I think you understand now. You have to remove the regulator and get a hose with quick connect to connect to the coach. The coach connector is already regulated down to low pressure.
