Lin, if I remember correctly, the ETI supplied hose has a flare fitting. You have to remove the regulator/control knob assembly and separate the two as the regulator must be removed. The propaneis already regulated at the tanks to provide low pressure.
I would advise you not to attach the hose to the Weber and wrap it around the grill when not in use. Rather, I would suggest you put a female QD fitting on the end of the hose and a pigtail with a male QD on the grill. That way, should you acquire a propane fire pit you can put a male QD fitting on it and that allows you to use the hose with more than one appliance. Low pressure QD fittings are available on Amazon or from Tejas Smokers (on the web).

Only some models of the Weber Q are a straight mod. On mine, I just unscrewed the regulator and added a male QC which screwed right in to where the regulator was. Purchased a Camco QC hose with a male on the trailer end and female on the grill side. As Carl says I can now use the hose on multiple appliances.
I believe I have the 1000 model Weber Q

No adapter necessary. Carefully unscrew the pressure regulator using two wrenches, one on regulator and one on fitting next to it. Screw on ETI supplied hose, hook it up, check for leaks and start using it! Don't use plumbers tape or goop, it will screw up anything downstream it gets hung up on.

Yes, those look to be exactly what I purchased. It had been a year and a half so I didn't really remember too well, went and got the grill out and took a pic. Looks like it required a stop at Home D as well for an additional piece.

I would like to do this for our Q-1200. What exactly do I need to purchase to ensure a safe experience? I don't understand a lot of the information out there and the "additional piece" is what worries me...

Adding Quick Connect Regulator to Weber Q – Introduction to Everything

This is the best I've seen out there. Goes through all the parts needed and it even modifies the regulator that can be added back inline if you want to use a high pressure propane source again. Video at the bottom as well.

**Note that if you don't plan on doing the full mod including the regulator then don't order the Camco 59853 Propane Quick Connect Kit because you don't need the female end. Just order a 1/4" quick connect male fitting, Camco 59903: www.amazon.com/Camco-59903-Propane-Quick-Connect-Fitting/dp/B007HG7WUQ

Thank you so much! I have gone as far as contacting Fairview fittings and they sent me an e-mail saying this was impossible! I know it can be done because many folks have modified theirs! Thanks for this awesome site!

Portable gas grill recommendation

Volcano. 12” skillet.
We can pretty much do anything with it, Grill, roast, barbecue etc. I can even roast coffee beans. Yes I’m a coffee snob.
The only potential downside of the volcano is it does require a high-pressure connection. But for us that is not really a concern, as I always tend to cook from the picnic table anyway, if one is provided.
