I had the gas guy installed me a low and high output propane hookups on the gas line going into my house for my not so soon to be outside kitchen. Low output for grille and high output for crawfish pot.

I know it's 3/8 for sure. I know nothing about all this so I don't want to amazon the wrong crap. Send me amazon links to the right stuff lol

-I need the whips to be 15' long or longer
-I need some kind of quick hookup and disconnect. Kinda like a BBQ pit to a propane tank. I don't want to use wrenches.

Those are both regulated lines. The flow differences will be minimal, the capped one will be lower due to the amount of pipe it has to travel thru. The capped one is npt, so regular pipe thread. I would suggest getting your propane guy out there and get you what you need.

Don't take this as a jab, but if you need us to give you amazon links for propane fittings this might not be the best project for you to undertake. The risk is high with a relatively small reward if that makes sense. Also, most propane companies are set up to make custom length hoses and have all the fittings you need.

I work in the propane industry and will give you this very sound advice. Unless you are very well schooled and experienced with propane call your propane supplier to finish this and test the entire system for leaks. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've sent my techs out to "fix" what a do it yourselfer tried to do all to save a couple hundred dollars. I'm not trying to sound so stern but it's very dangerous when not done properly and very safe when it is. Not to mention your propane supplier is fully insured.

No jabs taken. That's why I'm here. To do it right. I'm also here because of my propane supplier lol.
The high output is before the regulator down at the bottom. My plumber did the line out the house that's capped for $200 bucks. Propane guy says that wasn't needed. Great guys. They helped me for years. He was saving me money. And I'm not building my kitchen for possibly a year which he said he would then come and do unground.
He told me to go to lowes/Home Depot but they where no help. They didn't know what to do and was trying to get me to get dryer propane kits which was 3 5' piece for $35-40 a pop and put together.
So now I'm here.
I know both fittings are 3/8 fl outputs. The guy that fills my tank came by yesterday and I asked him

I had to zoom in to see the fitting before the regulator your talking about. My propane guy told me to do it myself and save the money when we had our pool built and needed the heater hooked up. He knew from being around us that I could easily do it and once I got his blessing it was easy peasy. For your case, call the supplier and have their tech come out and figure up what you'll need. As I said, they can get you everything needed for a self install or better yet they do it and test for leaks like mentioned. That's what I'd recommend. Propane is no joke and a small leak over time can seriously cause your entire house to blow up. Friends of mine went to one down the road a few years back and it leveled the home and killed a few. Propane and NG are nothing to mess around with

LGM,

The pic below is for Example Only.

If you have a industrial hose supplier near you, have them make this up in gas approved braided hose.
Install a gas quick connector at your valve. This way, when you're done with the hose, you can disconnect it, roll it up and store it away. Make sure the quick connector comes with a plug, to keep debris out when not in use.
Have them install a 1/4" pipe fitting on the end of the hose(male or female, depending on your current burner set-up)

I use American Rigging, Cajun Hose, and Connector Specialist in Baton Rouge. You might check with Hatec International, or Bluewater Rubber in Hammond.

Awesome. Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for.
When I finally build my kitchen then I'll get the propane company company to come run everything underground. And keep these hoses for future stuff just incase I need to add something quick like a second crawfish pot. Been doing good with just one crawfish pot since I bought a 180qt one :).

Both the pit and boiling pots are the standard hand tighten fittings like the picture.

Lived here my whole life and can't recall blue water rubber
