I would bet that it does have an exterior regulator built into the propane connector, like every one I have ever seen of theirs. The bulk hose will hook up to any larger bottle, like the 20 lb ones on the trailer.

Coleman has a bunch of stoves with these burners now, it seems to be the way they are going. Nice to not have to use the side panels which restrict pot size in many cases. The last 6 on Coleman Canada's site use these burners, but the Gladiator does not seem to be mentioned.

Thanks Jim, but see below...

I agree. After asking, I saw on the Hyperflame product series page and in a review article that it does have that typical fitting for the cylinder. With basic stoves that fitting acts as both regulator and flame control (it has a knob); in stove and grills like this one with two separate flame controls on the body of the stove this fitting has just a regulator in it.

As with other lightweight camp stoves that have a regulator out there on the end of the tube, it would require creative plumbing to convert it to low-pressure operation because the attachment of the tube to the stove is not a common fitting type... and that's assuming that the Coleman regulator puts out the standard low pressure (11"WC).

Yes, the "bulk hose hook up" will just be a high-pressure propane extension hose with the same fitting type as the top of a disposable cylinder on the stove end, and likely a QCC-1 (standard fitting to attach to 20-pound "barbecue" tanks) on the other. This can be used with just about any appliance designed for the small (one pound) disposable propane cylinders.

Wow, a lot of info on grills. Can anyone recommend a portable grill or burner combo that works with the quick connect?

Dickinson Spitfire 180 has option that will allow it to be used on low pressure hose.
I prefer to use a separate 10 lb ( or 5 lb. tank ) so I can use the grill anywhere.

If you decide you want the Dickinson, don't buy it from manufacturer site.

We really like the Weber Q grills - the smallest one is great. We have the 120 now called the 1200 with the thermometer in the lid. The 1000 is the same grill, no thermometer. Easy to convert to quick connect. Love the domed lid and Weber has it down for grilling. The coleman is easier to clean - it has pans underneath the burners. There are some you tube videos on how to convert a coleman to quick connect.
We also converted the campfire in a can to quick connect. Here's a pic of the weber and the campfire.
Have fun!

We picked up our 19 about a month ago, and last week were able to check out the quick connect and our new Weber Q1000 grill. I unscrewed the regulator from the valve and screwed on the quick connect hose without any problem or additional hardware although I did use yellow teflon tape. It worked great for us at our camping last week, where we cooked hamburgers and then turkey sausages for our group of 7.

I have an older Weber Q100 which I converted to low pressure a few years back. I put a male QD fitting on it and made up a regulator with a female QD so I can run it with a cylinder if desired or with the QD on the trailer. I also mounted a thermometer in the lid. Easy to do. If I used a cook stove, I would convert it also. It might require trickier modification but I believe it wouldn't be that hard to accomplish the conversion. We do all our cooking and baking on the Weber.
