"I have a Vermont Castings propane grill. We just moved into a house where the back deck has a pipe from the house propane line. Does anyone know how to hook my grill up to this line so I don't need to bother with the 20 pound tanks?"

Ah….I have the same set up and my local propane company will neither tell me how to connect it nor come out on a service call and connect it for me. Told me to call a heating contractor….(???). I thought that strange since they installed the tank.

I’ll keep digging for info.

I’d like to do the same thing. Near as I can tell from research I’ve done, if your line on the deck is DOWNSTREAM of the house pressure regulator, you just have to have the fitting for the tank regulator hooked to a nipple off your home line. But for gosh sake, don’t take that as gospel!

Just did this at my house. If the connection is piped from the home propane downstream the main regulator then you just need a straight hose hooked up WITHOUT the BBQ tank regulator. I just took off the BBQ inlet hose (with in-line regulator built-in) and replaced it with a quick-connect natural gas hose that they sell at any building supply store for $30-40. Works like a charm.
