Not meaning to blaspheme here talking about LP but I didn't wan't to create a new forum profile on a gasser site to get answers to my dilemma:
Background info: In addition to my LBGE I use a Weber Q-200 LP grill for quick cooks and tailgating. I hooked it up to a 20# tank via adapter hose and don't get anywhere near the temperature variation I should be getting. There is little difference between "high" and "low" heat. When I crank it up I'd like to get a good searing temp and when it's turned down I'd like it to be low temp. This is a 12,000 BTU grill. I think the regulator is a type Q-689.
I've conducted extensive internet searches but haven't come up with any good answers on my own. I've ruled out that this is an isolated issue (my dad and brother have the same model, same issue).
Questions: If I install an adjustable regulator (like you'd find on a turkey fryer) do you think this would help me get the BTU's I need out of this grill? If not, is there a compatible regulator out there that allows for higher BTU's (something closer to 18k-24k BTU's?)
Thanks for the help. Apologies in advance for my first post here involving LP. I'll post more relevant subject matter shortly.
