Has anyone hooked up their turkey fryer or similar high pressure (5+ PSIG) burner to a 100 gallon or bigger propane tank?
I have a 100 gallon tank that runs my gas logs so we hardly use any of that gas where I go through 20lb tanks on a regular basis with my turkey fryer. I want to hook the fryer up to the 100 gallon tank with the 20 lb propane tank fitting for ease of connecting. The regulator on my tank now is a low pressure regulator (< 1 PSIG). The only thing I can think to do is to cut the high pressure 1/4" tubing between the regulator and shut off valve on the 100 gallon tank and install a T going to a shut off valve and from there piped to my turkey fryer location where I'd have another shut off valve followed by the POL ACME thread fitting you find on the smaller propane tanks. This is a shuttoff as well should the male end on the fryer not be screwed in.
I have the POL fitting so I'd just have to pick up the other parts.
I wasn't sure if there was an issue doing this. I'd like to know if and what other folks have done.
If I can do this then I'll definitely use enough propane to keep from paying that $60/yr charge for the tank since I don't use enough.
