Sorry, I also didn't mention I removed the regulator at the grill and the hose is attached just like the one in the video. I guess I could have something caught up in the hose or connections.


Sounds like it. 99 times out of a hundred it’s doubled regulators. You are probably the 100th with a bit o’ crud in there somewhere, probably at the orface from which gas blows into the air mixer, just before the burner.

Sounds like a blockage someplace, might even be in the hose supplying the Weber. Mine has a small flame, does not go out and is sufficient for stake.

Side note, I use my Weber Baby-Q 2-3 times a week since I bought in 1999. Never replaced a part and still using it!

I installed a tap on the high pressure side. The hose has the standard 1" bottle thread and I have an adapter for any other BBQ.

Therefore no changes required for any BBQ and it's own regulator is used.

My system looks a lot like the one on the video but it was supplied by an LP gas company. They made the lines that connect to my trailer output and connect to my grill.

What you're saying makes no sense. 16.4 oz propane canisters have a 1"-20 threaded male fitting and is HIGH pressure. Any low pressure feed you may have on your trailer's curb side should be a quick disconnect fitting, if it's not then it's not low pressure. Any custom hose built to feed low pressure to a Weber Q on which the regulator has been removed should have a quick disconnect male nipple at the trailer end and a threaded fitting at the other than screws on to the Weber in place of it's regulator. Question - what make, model, year of trailer do you have and 2) a couple of pics of what you're talking about would help.

Just to let you know Weber customer service over the phone is fantastic.

I am starting to wonder if the gas company made an error. The two hose connections look just like the top of a small gas bottle and what is the end of the original gas grill connection for the bottle. The end of the hose that connects to the trailer is the same and it just screws on. A quick connect would be much better with a shut off but that is what I have at the moment. I think I may need a different system.

Again, a major LP gas supplier put this together for me at the shop. It works pretty well but the flame is super low like it is going through two regulators but there are only hoses from the trailer to the connection at the grill and the regulator has been removed from the grill. I still have it in a bag with the connections.

This is the high pressure adapter with a El (for hose routing considerations) and a shutoff valve. The top external tank port came with the adapter. The BBQ connector is the standard 1lb 1" propane bottle type.

12’ hoses and adapter for the standard BBQ regulator fitting are available. Propane stores can also make custom length hoses however I have a second 12' hose to use when needed.

Hi lamopar, your multiple sets of screw connectors maybe too restrictive.
Your trailers regulator may be set too low.
Have the gas company check both along with cr@p in the lines.

Another potential problem is the length of hose may cause the safety valve on the propane tank to shut off. When you connect the hose there is a sudden rush of propane to fill it. This can be sensed as a leak triggering the safety valve.

I have a 20’ line that I run from a splitter off the tank before the regulator. I have to turn the tank off first, connect the hose, then slowly open the tank valve allowing the hose to fill completely before opening the valve the rest of the way.

I run into problems trying to run my bbq at the same time as my outside kitchen stove when the are on the same tank as well.
