Dave, I did the same with my Campfire in a Can and my Weber Q100. Easy to do but I had to order the QC fittings on line. I also made up a regulator with a female QC so that I could run the grill or the grill from a smaller tank I carry in the back of the truck. It provides a degree of versatility, especially if I want to use the grill someplace other than the campsite.

I did the same in my conversion of my Porta Chef grill to a low-pressure quick-connect.

And I just slide by Canadian Tire and bought it. However, it was 119.99 not 99.99.
As a proud Canadian I prefer Crappy Tire to Wallyworld.

Canadians still own Canadian Tire don't we?

This certainly seems to vary by location. Around here, I've never seen high-pressure quick-connect fittings in an RV store. I guess the key is to read the package, but that might not always be clear.

The only quick-connect I see around here is the Fairview Gas-Flo QD for RVs with shutoff; the same fittings are on the Fairview RVQD extensions (or similar of another brand). The Fairview website doesn't show the packaging or even say low-pressure, but I'm pretty sure the retail packaging does specify low pressure.

Me too.

And, I think so.

What's the matter here? Is this a pride thing or do you just not like all the "high quality" Chinese made products that you can count on to last a lifetime; well, at least the lifetime of a mosquito.

Actually, the Chinese have every capability of making high quality products, and I have bought quite a few of them. They get their bad name on products driven by the wants of North Americans, who want to buy products really cheap. They give us what we ask for. If there was not the market for these cheap products, they would not even be on the shelves. You can be certain, if there was more call for better quality stuff, with a higher profit margin for them, they would certainly produce it for us.

This is why for the most part, I am willing to suck up the cost of good quality products, many made in North America, as it really bugs me to use the cheaper products, and have to replace them fairly often. I learned quickly through work the value in more expensive, good quality tools, ones that perform better, are easier to use, and last a long, long time. Sure, there are times I buy that cheap one time use tool, and often it doesn't even do the job.

Back on the topic of the Outland Firebowl, I find it strange that CT does not even have it listed on their site, when they have it in stock, when WAY more commonly you see things listed on their site, that are not in stock.

Don't disagree with you at all, Jim. But knowing how Walmart specs products it sells, high quality Chineses products will never be available there. I, too, avoid buying much of anything there. Funny, I spent a good amount of time north of the border earlier this summer. I wanted to go into a CT but never did. Went to Lee Valley, however. Reminded me of Brookstone in the 70s before they went trashy.

Quite the difference in quality from Walmart (mostly low) to CT (low to mid-range) to Lee Valley (mostly high). I spend lots of money at Lee Valley.
