Also read the manual, You must open the LP tank valve very slow, the new tanks have funny safety design, I had low flame on the 2nd use w/full tank and was puzzled because it was high flame on the night before.

Re: Low gas flame
There is probably carbon build up (grease residue) in the orifice of the nozzles, reduces gas flow, they can be unscrewed and replaced, or cleaned with salt & baking soda, see the manufactures web site for your grill for instructions on removing shields to clean the nozzles and orifices

The new regulators will automatically shut down or reduce flow if the it senses that the flow is too high (as in a line leak or break). It can also be folled if you open the valve too quickly. There is a special plastic plug that can reset a tripped valve in the new tanks. (Mosquito Magnet supplies one with their product).
The other thing is that there is a recall going on at Char Broil of defective thermometers that are reading too low.
Are the flames still yellow? If so the burner just needs to be adjusted which is very easy? Look at the ends of the tubes that come out of the burner and end right at the back of the gas controls. You should see a small piece of metal that will slide or spin to close a hole. You want to close or open it a little at a time while the grill is burning. Adjust this until you only see blue flame or blue flames with a little bit of a yellow tip.
