Great. If you could post a couple of pictures that would be great. I want to do the same to my weber.

My only concern is that the weber valve is awesome - infinite adjustment to very low levels.

What is the model number on the new valve.

Thanks,

I ordered the 2 pieces suggested and the valve does not fit where the Weber regulator was. I have the Weber Q 120.

Well, I had the same result. The problem is the Weber regulator has a brass fitting that fits into the BBQ burner tube. This clips into the burner tube, and is held in with a clip.

The Camco regulator also has a brass fitting but it is threaded and the wrong size . I unscrewed the Weber fitting to reuse it. The thread sizes are different from the Camco, and you need a female to female coupler but with separate thread sizes on each end. Nothing Home Depot carried, so going to check out a gas or propane store that sells fittings.

If this doesn't work, going to eye a BBQ that is made for low pressure gas LP hookups. Hope to find a solution for the Weber as it grills great and the size use right. Other option would be to get the Weber adaptor hose and run off a small 5gallon LP tank, but the goal is to have fewer tanks, not more.

I have baby weber grill and I removed the regulator and installed a flaired adapter I bought at true value hardware store hooked directly to hose that came with our trailer. Works great and no need for additional tanks

Did you have any luck finding a fitting that works? Having the same issue here...

We plan on just continuing to use our Weber, as it has served us well. I would be hard pressed to find a better portable grill.

We use a 6' hose to directly connect to one of our propane tanks. I simply connect the hose, threading it up from the bottom. This is what I have done for years.

Since we bought the Classic, I thought there would be an easy solution with the disconnect, but it doesn't look like it.

On a side note - is anybody really happy with a grill they have bought that works with the quick disconnect?


Thanks,

Yes

Yes, as I have said before marine grills are designed for double duty, in most cases. I have a Dickinson operating on low pressure from the qd that is perfect. I have also used Magma's. Admittedly, marine grills are more expensive because of the stainless steel but they last a long time.

I went to our local Ace hardware with the Weber valve and the hose that came with the AS, it took a 3/8 to 1/8 female to male brass threaded reducer and a female to female 1/8 brass coupler to make things fit. I have not used it yet since it is still zero outside here, but We are leaving for Florida in a week

I will let you know then if it works.

Thanks,
I am, we bought the stainless steel grill from CW that is made for the low pressure outlet and a 16' braided stainless steel gas hose. It works just fine. amidst all this talk of removing regulators and replacing with valves there's something nobody is taking into consideration. The gas orifice has to be sized for propane not natural gas and must match the BTU rating of the burner in the grill. Using an incorrect orifice size may let you light the grill and cook a hot dog or two but the grill will not work as designed and could be dangerous to use. It is a modification best left to the experts.

Well, I spent time at ACE and couldn't find the right bits to make the Camco valve work, because its fitting is not standard. Ended up just buying the Weber 6501 adapter kit and will bring along a smaller LP tank.
