Usefull info

Have a weber baby q, bought a hose that plugs into the propane connector under the trailer and screws to where the 1 pound propane bottle goes. With it hooked up this way I noticed that the Q is a little harder to light, and it takes longer to heat up and the temp guage only goes to 260 degrees. Now disconnected the Q from the hose and let it cool down and put the 1 pound bottle on and lit it and it light much quicker and much faster heating up , and the temp goes to almost 500 degrees. Remember the Q is working thru 2 propane regulaters and slows down the propane. I am going to see if there is a way to modify the regulator and be able to use the 1 pound bottle and thru the reg and when I hook up to the trailer bypass the reg. Have to see what can be done.

I removed the regulator from my Q and attached the hose directly. It works great. You need to change the fitting on the grill end of the hose. I had my hose made at a propane place.

I connect our Webber to one of the tanks on the front of the trailer if we are traveling light. The trailer works on one tank and the Webber works on the other.

This was a experiment to see exactly how the Q would react hooking it up this way. After reading whys and why not I decided to try it and let other people have first hand knowledge of how the Q would work. All I remember is people saying it won't work etc etc etc, so it will work but refer to my first post. Thanx guys for the info. Ernie
