Thanks! That's super helpful. It looks like my SQ14 is 1/8" NPT, so I'll likely just get the
1/4" FNPT to 1/8" MNPT adapter and the Blichmann part. It looks like it will be super easy to
switch out (b...

I have a SQ14 and just realized there's a natural gas hookup on the corner of my deck. Can
anybody who's converted their SQ14 confirm what parts they used, and if it required any
drilling? There's a l...
