Re: The barbecue
When we used bottles for our gas barbecue, we stored them in a PVC tube made out of PVC plumbing pipe. I believe that 2" works well but you would have to measure for yourself. Attach a cap on the bottom with a hole drilled to allow for any escaped propane to be released. Make the collar up top big enough so you can store a bottle with the valve attached so you don't have to remove it which is the biggest cause of leaky bottles, add feet to attach to a stantion and you have a safe storage for 2 bottles.
We now connect to a propane cylinder mounted on a davit so we don't have to use those leaky bottles. Besides, the PVC tube looks like a rocket launcher! An added bonus!
