Default Can not get the grill regulator off!

Ok so I got myself a turkey fryer today. I am currently trying to remove the propane tank from the grill to hook up to the turkey fryer.

Whoever put this propane tank on made a pretty good point to not be able to take it off. I am pretty strong and I can not unscrew this thing for the life of me. Anyone know any specific techique to get this thing off??

Like BB said, might be a Left Hand Thread. Righty-Tighty Lefty-Loosey does not apply in flammable gas connections, it is the opposite.
