Then at the other end, I have needle valves, these:

FNPT / MPT Needle Valve Brass Fitting

I bought 3/8" male flare to 1/4" MNPT converter at Home Depot to connect the hose to the needle valve.

The needle valve screws into a 1/4" FNPT to 1/2" MNPT coupler which screws into the iron pipe.

Then the rest is just iron pipe fittings to a gas valve from Home Depot finally to the regulator that I took off my Bayou Classic burner.

Black pipe to regulator: HIGH PRESSURE REGULATOR 130 LB. #140 SET - Agri Supply

Regulator to burner: LP GAS HOSE ASSEMBLY - Agri Supply

Can I order these parts and get the rest from HD?

I have 3 regulators on mine like in your drawing. I did it that way because I already had them but now I'm thinking about using one and then adding 3 valves. I'm like to see the needle valves people are using, I don't like the regular on/off valves because you don't have much control.

I'm looking for a little help on this as well. I have the black pipe and have it run back to my propane tanke. I picked up gas ball valves from lowes. Will those work? Also, I ordered my burners from agrisupply but they have not arrived yet. Do they come with the jets? If not, where can I pick them up? I'm supposed to brew Sunday. Thanks.



Shop BrassCraft 1/2" x 1/2" FIP Straight Gas Ball Valve at Lowes.com

This is the size you want unless you use an adapter or a custom hose with different size ends.
The cast iron burners use a 3/8" FIP fittings

Okay, but how do I connect to the burners? I'd prefer to not order the part.

You need a hose or pipe assembly from your valve with a 1/2" female flare on one end and a 3/8" female flare on the other.
