Is it possible to have 2 natural has connections on one line

Basically want to do something like this https://www.amazon.ca/Mxfans-Connector- ... 274&sr=8-3

I need to install 2 quick connects to one gas line. I would only be using one appliance at any given time but its a pain removing and reconnecting the hose each time.

When I did my line to the backyard for a grill and fire, I was told the line needed to be sized so that all appliances on it would be able to run full speed and the gas would flow correctly.

So if your line is big enough, maybe?

Yes, even if you only intend to use one appliance at a time you're supposed to size the line and have enough capacity to run everything that's connected simultaneously on full. I hired someone to connect my BBQ and fire table and told them the BTU of each, then they did some checking and gave me the option of installing a splitter and having both hooked up.

Here's what they installed for me:

It'll be fine as long as you don't try running two high demand appliances at the same time. Worse case there is, they give you shitty performance.
Make sure you use the correct sealant on the threads, and bubble test it. Explosion is not an issue outdoors , but you don't want to possibly have a little flame jet lighting your siding or deck on fire.
