Default LPG hose sources

Does anyone here know where one can purchase tubing rated for low-pressure/vapor LPG by the foot? I know it is available, but I can't find any suppliers for some reason.
I am going to get a hurricane burner and convert it to NG so I can get 12 gallons to boil in under 1 hour. My little propane Bayou burner just isn't cutting it. And waiting 1-1/2 hours to get to boiling is driving me nuts!

Propane burners put out more BTUs, in case that matters and you may have to re-jet.

BUT I was thinking something similar and I know I have seen NG extension kits for BBQs at Lowes and Home Depot, back with all the BBQ stuff.

Thanks, I will check them out. I figured there would be a place to buy "per ft" somewhere. I just can't seem to find it.

any propane company will have the hose. it just depends if they will sell it to you or not without fittings on the end. amerigas is one you can try, or just look up a local welding suply shop or propane shop

OK, thanks. I don't now why I never think to look locally anymore. I always try to order everything online.

Probably because it will cost twice as much locally.

Uhhhh.....YEAH, that's it! That sounds much better than saying that I am getting older and senility is taking hold.

some times you pay more, but you cant beat local service and being able to hold someone accountable in person rather than on the phone 1000 miles away.

There is definitely something to be said for that.
