Natural Gas BBQ Piping

We are replacing an old pedestal barbecue with a new natural gas BBQ (on wheels with flex hose for gas). The existing arrangement uses wrapped black pipe from in the house down to a connection burried in the ground that changes to copper and goes about 12 feet below soil to the BBQ base. The shut-off is in the house. Is this safe? Is this to code? is there a better material for buried gas pipes? If so - how do you transition from the black pipe? The BBQ mfr. has no info. on this.

Best advice I can give you is to check with your local gas company. All areas have different codes pertaining to the running of gas service lines. Lots of new materials also. If you check with them at least you know you have done it safe and correctly. Good luck.
