Changing propane grill to natural gas

6 posts in this topic

Hey I have a question..

Anyone here ever convert a conventional propane grill to natural gas? We just bought a different home and re-built the deck and the previous owner has a gas line running out to the deck with a shut off that I suppose was for a grill, anyway this seems like the clear ticket. The connection is like an air chuck type quick connect, question is, what do I need to do to allow this to work, there is a regulator on the main line from the meter inside the house, and the line for the deck is beyond that, which I beleive is what knocks down the pressure to like 2lbs or something?? Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Scott

I have read somewhere that you will either need new burners or you will have to drill the holes bigger for the natural gas.

I believe one will need to place a different jet in the grill for natural gas if it is a propane model.

You just need to get a different regulator, that's it. My father-in-law did just what you want to do. I'm not sure what kind to get, but a heating & A/C parts dealer, or even a place that specializes in grills could steer you in the right direction.

You will have to open up the jets and change the reg. on the burners, you should be able to turn the jets open with a wrench, just a little at a time, then lite and look at the flame, it should burn blue and sharp. It will probley take a few trys before it burns right. Also make sure there is a gas shutoff before the quick coupler, just added protection from a gas leak if the coupler dosen;t seat properly. If you are not comfortable doing this a get a service man to make the change over.

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!

    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
