Re:ok question about regulators
Doc, propane inspectors are far and few now-a-days. This all happened years ago. At that time I had the old propane tanks that aren`t anywhere near what they are now a days.Opened valve, propane came out. Inspectors wanted regulator at tank, and shut off valve just before going into fryer. I didn`t make the rules, just obeyed them to stay in business. LOL if fryer did catch on fire, too dang old to get on hands and knees to shut valve. I would shut shut off at tank. Or let it burn! BTW, I haven`t been inspected by a propane inspector in state of New Mexico in years, the old guy passed away. I do one event in Texas 3 times a year, fire marshall inspects all of us. Understand at the ballon fiesta in Albuqueque, lots of propane insectors there thru the event, with hands held out for your daily dose of permit fees.
