Question for Weber Performer w/ gas assist owners
 
I've got the little 5 lb tank that came with my CL score Weber Performer...but I want to use this little guy when I hit the road camping or tailgating...with my weed burner to get my coals going.
It has the quick-coupler on it...which I'm guessing was standard issue...
What I need is an adapter for the quick-coupler so I can use my handy-dandy Harbor Freight weed burner with it, but also bring the tank back home and hook it back up to the ol' Performer...

Anyone know where to find one of these adapters? I've looked at several hardware and supply stores with no luck so far...
Anyone have a link to one of these little adapters?

Thanks in advance...

Shawn

One of my Stainless Steel Performers came with the Quick Release fitting (male end) for refilling the old style (non OPD) propane tanks. You would take it to the refill station and it screws onto the pump nozzle. It fits perfectly on my Harbor Freight weed burner and the guy that refills my tanks has them so I never have to remove it. Its similar to this http://www.mrheater.com/product.aspx?catid=357&id=109

I have the little pancake tank that comes with the Char-Broil Patio Caddy gas grill for my weed burner-keep an eye out for them! http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...ductId=1995335

Mr. Heater makes QR valves that you need. I know my local Ace Hardware carries them and some Lowes in the grill section, but they aren't cheap-I think I eyeballed them and it would have been over $40 to convert-too much for my cheap a$$!

This helped me hooked larger tanks to the Weber. I believe you want the opposite?

Thanks guys...I stopped at a supply store on the way home from work this evening...thought I had what I needed, but got home and it didn't mate with my weed burner...guess I'll just have to take it all in tomorrow and figure it out in the store...
I hope they don't freak seeing a guy walking into the Farm Supply store carrying a propane bottle and a weed burner...nah...probably not in KS...
