By code, the gas supply line to any appliance should have an isolation valve on it. Ideally we would want to have this shut off valve at a readily accessible spot in the event of an emergency. If your range or pot catches on fire, you do not want to tamper with pulling it out. Having a shut off valve in the basement or source is the ideal solution. There is no harm if you have an isolation valve both behind the range and at the source.
Assuming the basement is unfinished, you are looking at 2 – 3 hours to complete the task.
If your BBQ is a standalone unit and not a built in one, it likely has a quick disconnect fitting on it. These are meant for a home owner to disconnect the BBQ and not require assistance from a gas fitter. If this mechanism has seized up, it will require a licensed technician to remove it and disconnect your BBQ.
