new gas grill with old gas lines

We had a weber gas grill and we just bought a brinkmann (1o years since last purchase). I wanted to move the grill from one side of a rectangle space to the nearest other side of a rectangular space. We turned off the gas and unhooked the old line. A plumber says we need to spend $300 to hook up the new grill. That seems awfully expensive.

$300 for a safe gas line seems pretty cheap to me. I won't work on a gas line for love nor money, not because I don't think I could, but why take the risk, and anyway, in my area it's code to use a liscenced gas fitter. In fact, the box stores pulled the yellow flex gas pipes from their shelves a few years ago. You should ask the installer to explain the reasons for the cost and I'm sure he will be more than happy to tell you. Perhaps he is installing a quick release connection and an inline valve if you don't have one already. I think, also, that the 'shutoff' has to be immediately visible and easily accessed.

There's my 2 cents for what its worth..."ounce of prevention" thing
