Installing gas line to outside grill


October in Phoenix is absolutely the best time of year for outdoor grilling and soon the evenings will be perfect for sitting around the fire pit. We've decided to run a gas line from our external gas meter from the side of our house, under a block wall into our back yard for about 80' to an area we currently have a wood burning for pit. I haven't a clue what the City of Phoenix "code" requires but a 20" deep trench along the edge of our stem wall and patio should be pretty straight forward and I'm thinking I can do it myself. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Ben, I appreciate the fact that professionals should be utilized when necessary but this is an external install and I can't imagine it would be too difficult. No, I'm not certified to pressure test gas lines but I've run 220 volt electrical wiring and I'm not a licensed electrician either. I just like to do little projects myself and if this is something I can do with input from others then great; if it's really all that complex or dangerous to me or others then of course I'll hire a pro.

it will have to be tested and inspected....so it will have to be up to code according to your area ..my area will not inspect any gas line work that is not done by a certified installer...before you start check with your local,,,ben sr

Wow, well I guess the real estate market is bad enough without all us DIYers blowing up half of our neighborhoods. Better get a pro or just keep burning wood in the pit. Thanks Ben!
