Default Single Tier plumbing

I'm almost complete with my build, but have a question on the gas plumbing..
Just as a visual it's a brutus type clone with no gas tube. I was going to run exterior gas plumbing.

Why is everyone using 1/2" Black pipe and not 3/8"??

I used 1/4" for my whole gas system. I guess you can use larger if you want, but I had trouble getting the pressure I needed for twin 10" banjo burners with larger pipe.

I plan on using 1/2" black pipe simply because that's what home depot carries.

Are you using an electric valve to open and close your burners?

I always thought you were suppose to match your current plumbing your splicing into is. But then again, I have not pulled the trigger on this conversion yet.
