  1. 30 seconds on Google came up with this. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=propane+hose+adaptors&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=15074795931774851023&sa=X&ei=IwlhTsrfLoPq0gGSpeAN&ved=0CGAQ8wIwAg I'm sure there are more and perhaps even a few available at your local hardware store. Good Luck! Rolf
  2. Your post is a timely one. I’ve been using the Performer for years now and just last week purchased the 22-1/2” OTG to go with it. I also picked up the sear grate and grill at the same time. First off please know we considered going to a gas grill supplement but I’m sold on charcoal. When I suggested gas, my son said no way, stick with the charcoal. My justification was too often we end up waiting for the vegetables or other dishes to get ready after the main courses are done. My wife has lost 30 pounds recently and truly enjoys vegetables on the grill. I picked up a large basket/cover with a detachable handle just for this purpose and life is good. With the second grill I can cook the side dishes at the same time I do the main dishes. It also gives me the additional freedom to go direct on one grill and indirect on the other. The addition of the sear grate and skillet gives me even more flexibility. Please keep in mind everyone here enjoys charcoal. Given the fact you got a good deal on the new grill, I don’t see how you could possibly consider taking it back. One more note, I also got the thermometer for the new Performer in the mail yesterday and will be adding that to the new One Touch tomorrow once the weather clears here. Good Luck! Rolf
  3. Bob, first of all thanks for the information. As you can see, this is my first post. What landed me here was I have had a Performer for a number of years and I found I needed more capacity, (read additional grill). I cook strictly with charcoal so ended up getting a new 22-1/2” OTG yesterday. Two things became obvious. I needed the holders for indirect as sometimes I actually spread them apart rather than just cooking to one side, and a thermometer. Bottom line, thanks to your help I ordered a new thermometer, P/N 70180. This is the one on the newer Performer so should be much easier to install compared to the older one I have. Once again…. Thanks! Rolf
