Hey folks. How do I run 2 burners off of 1 20# propane tank? Is it possible?

When I got my fryer setup they screwed up and sent me 2 burners and 2 regulators!



Wanna get my HLT going too but I my budge is currently $0 so no more toys
including that additional propane tank.

I suppose it will cost $ to adapt 2 burners to one tank though...

If thats not the right fitting, I am positive there is something out there somewhere.

The thing is, that's almost as much as another propane tank. I'd rather have a 2nd tank.

holy crap, that is as much as another tank. I did not even look. Oh well, HLT will have to wait a bit I guess.

Others have had luck picking up a spare tank at the dump - might be worth a trip.

Watch craigslist for people giving away old gas grills. You might find one with a tank you could use.

What you really need to do is put those burners to work proper-like. Pick up some cheap/free bed frames and build yourself a brew stand.

I saw a fitting at walmart last week to put two taps on a tank. It was back in the camping section. I think it was about $10.
