All lpg(propane) fueled barbecues can be converted to natural gas some easier than others.
The process requires changing the tiny lpg nozzle with a larger low pressure ng nozzle,

The only thing you can do if Weber doesn't have a natural gas manifold for their grills , is to buy one that will fit. They use propane on outside grills because of the stability of the gas. Natural gas will blow out much easier.

I removed the jets and drilled them out, #54 is what I started with and then moved up from there to get a good flame( gas pressure may be diffrent in your area). I went to lowes and purchased the universal gas line for grills. Item #: 206469 from lowes, I removed the hoses from the valves, and proceeded to remove the regulator from the hose. After that, i used a 1/4" npt coupling, and a 1/4/" NPT to 3/8" Flare fitting( fits to hose).
I drilled a hole in the brace that is under the clamshell(it says UP) that way I had a place to relive stress from the hoses. I threaded the Coupler to the Y then threaded the Flare fitting thru the sheet metal and then the coupling. This was an easy mod minus the garage in disarray, my precision calipers on loan, and 3 trips to the hardware store. The connection that goes to the house is a 3/8" NPT Female, my house has 1/2" pipe, The one wasted trip to the store is because i didnt bring the fitting with me to the store and assumed the size was 1/2 to 3/4(Rookie Mistake).
It was 35 degrees when I finished this mod, and on high for all 3 burners, I got it to 675F in a hurry. the needle was still creepin up, but that is when I said that was good enough for me.
I used my lathe to drill out the jets, ksware is correct with how easy the jets break. I broke the one in the side burner. I will make another one when I get an hour or two. Good luck to you and happy grilling.

Please be careful
when converting appliances form natural gas to propane. Depending on the
equipment there are several changes that need to be made. You will at least
have to change burner orifices and convert or replace the gas valve. Some gas
valves are not convertible. What many people over look are changing the pilot
orifice and on some appliances like braising pans, griddles and char broilers
there is a runner tube orifice. The gas valve also needs to be adjusted to the
proper manifold pressure and pilot adjustments will be required. I recommend on Vulcan equipment that you
contact Hobart Service since they are factory trained on all Vulcan cooking equipment.
