I don't know what the regulations are, but.....
Don't bury soft flexible copper at any depth. it is too easily damaged and buried lines should be permanent. Use black iron pipe and bury it at least 2 feet deep. 1/2" pipe is plenty big for this. bring the pipe up at or near your grill and install a shut off valve. from the shut off valve to the grill use 3/8 od minimum soft copper or a gas rated flex line. If this last run is more than a couple of feet use 1/2" od line.

: I am installing a fixed natural gas outdoor grill. The gas line to my pool heater is +/- 10ft away and already has a t-connector in line for this purpose.Also, I would like to bring an electric outlet close to my grill (for an electric rotissary). Are there regulations as to how far the elctric wiring and outlet have to be from the gas line? (I was told 12")

: Also, would 5/8" copper tubing (buried 12") be the best, or a plastic coated fuel line? (The grill is 40 000 BTU).
: Any particular copper?
: Any advice regarding the procedure or materials would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
