    Propane "Y" Splitter

    It took me forever to track down this part, so I figured I would share it with you. It's a propane tank "Y" Splitter so that you can heat both your kettle and HL tank at the same time off one tank. Thought I would put this up here so that when the next guy searches for it, they can find...
