I am interested in building a manifold to allow me to feed two Bayou Banjo Cookers with one propane tank. Being that it is propane, I want to make sure it is done properly, and most of all, completely safe.
Here is my plan:
- Build the manifold from black steel tubing and brass couplers/valves (both commonly found at Home Depot)
- Use gas connection hoses (the yellow ones - if I can find them at Home Depot) to go between the valves and the burners
- Use the regulator that came with one of the cookers to connect the tank to the manifold
Does this sound okay, or am I missing something critical? Any info from the folks on here who have already built something like this for themselves would be much appreciated. Thanks!
PS - I found a good amount of information in the DIY section related to various aspects of my question but I have yet to find a post that covers it exactly. I asked the folks at Home Depot and got a whole bunch of "I think..." responses. I called the local propane store and the woman I talked to said they would be happy to build it for me but don't do consultations.
