You will have to eliminate the pressure regulator attached to the unit, I'd contact the grill manufacturer, they may provide a low pressure attachment or have one to purchase.

looks to me like the regulator is part of the valve. I would just use 1 lb. cylinders and refill them or use the 5 lb. tank. I have a small Weber Q grill and I still use the small green cylinders. I think if I were full timing i would do something else though.

As mentioned, you remove the high pressure regulator and adapt what is left to connect to the quick connect hose end. Here's a video on how to do it to a Weber Q grill. There are a million of them on utube, I just picked one. Note that when you remove the regulator on the Weber you still have the adjuster knob, this may not be true of all grills. Your chosen grill also needs to have a screw on regulator so you can match the threads, no idea if they are all the same. The video will give you the idea anyway.

If you are going to use 1lb. tanks, bring them with you or bring your Visa card. Plus tax, plus environmental fee.
I use a 10 lb. tank. Used to have a 5 lb. which was OK too. I like that I can put my BBQ wherever I like ( in the lee of the trailer when windy for instance ).

Glenn, as previously discussed I went to the bulk tank this past season and can’t say enough good about it. I like the portability, volume available, refill cost versus 1lb cylinder cost etc. Heard from one of my kids this summer “ Hey dad, do you have any little green tanks? “Nope, sorry I gave you my last ones”

ETI LP hose connection

I have two 20 pound tanks connected to my bbq through the ETI supplied LP hose. Funny thing, it never seems to run out.

On my Dickinson BBQ I swapped out the regulator/valve for a simple volume control. One my Camp Chef stove and Outland fire pit, I just easily removed the existing regulator and hose. Each appliance got a male QC.

I know others scoff at this, but I just love the setup. I can have any two of the three appliances running at one time, and at 27-30 ' from the trailer connection.

I have used the little green bottles a lot in the past, and have come to loathe them. Regardless of the fact they are expensive and environmentally unfriendly, they also seem to run out mid grilling, and sometimes to find that I just used the last one.

If not going with the LP QC, I would bring an extra tank and hoses, though with either of these last two methods storage of the bottles is more of an issue than storage of my hoses.

Though, as long as the food gets cooked and tastes good, all is well.
