    I need a way to hook up 2 high pressure lines and 1 low pressure line for my smoker.

    I was thinking of a 1/2" or 3/4" black pipe with a connection hose to the supply then 3 FEMALE ADAPTER POL x 1/4 MPT threaded onto the black pipe.

    The 2 high pressure lines are for pipe burners and the 3rd would be for a RVQ grill.

    So from the supply first in line would be the (POL) for the grill (LOW PRESSURE), then a shutoff then a (POL) for the smoke chamber pipe burner (HIGH PRESSURE), and finally the last (POL) for the firebox pipe burner (HIGH PRESSURE).

    The grill will only be used when not using the pipe burners.

    What I am trying to accomplish here is to...
    • ... use the pipe burner in the firebox to ignite splits and possibly to use in place of wood if needed for smoking.
    • The grill is to be used for grilling foods while smoking (small grill).
    • The pipe burner in the smoker will be used when using the smoker as a (larger grill). And to pre-heat the smoker
    All lines will have the proper regulator and hoses to connect them to the pipe.

    Here are a few pics of the pipe burner
