If the grill can be converted, it's usually a matter of providing a source for the natural gas and then changing the gas jets for the burner(s) and possibly a regulator, depending on your model. Some grills may require changing the gas burner valves themselves. Kits are usually available from a dealer unless the unit is old.
The natural gas jet will be slightly larger than the propane jet because natural gas doesn't have as high a heating value as propane.
If you do this, check your new conversion for any leaks using a soap solution in a spray bottle.
Just be aware that the grill may not get as hot with natural gas and cooking could take a little longer, but should still work just fine.
Your natural gas line should typically be about 1/2" unless it's huge or is over 50-60 feet away from the grill location. If so, use a 3/4" line. Piping material and methods are usually governed by your local building codes.

It is inconceivable to me that large manufacturers like Jenn-Air and Nexgrill can jointly make and sell an expensive grill and then completely abandon the consumer. I purchased an Jenn-Air 740-0142 LPG and like so many wanted to convert to nautural gas which requires a larger gas orifice. I spent a month on the internet and phone calling Jenn-Air and finally Nexgrill who actually manufactured the unit in China. The Jenn-Air and Nexgrill serial numbers are the same. the 740 prefix is LPG and the 750 prefix is natural gas. After three calls to Nexgrill I found a manager who actually acknowledged making Jenn-Air but declined selling me parts for it as I believe they have product liability concerns. I call back as a Nexgrill owner and finally ordered natural gas orifices at $10.00 each. The shipment never showed up. Calling back again I was told that they really didnt really have any orifices in stock but could sell me the entire replacement gas valve for $28.00 which I purchased. The valves actually arrived on the shipping receipt was from The Grill Services in City of Industry 909-718-6128 www.grillservices.com . Part number 750-0141/142/593/594.
Forget about pirates in Somalia... we have them right here. Shame on you Jenn-Air and Nextgrill.

On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.

You will need to replace the orifices and install a propane regulator and hose. Plus, of course, you'll need to buy a 20# cylinder. I looked up your grill serial # and found a parts explosion for your grill. Here is the link: http://www.weber.com/PublicSchematic/view.aspx?model=6821001
If you click on the "additional parts" link, they have the conversion kits listed, but none of them are available anymore. As a propane guy, your best bet is to take it to a local propane co and have them convert it to propane for you. They will drill out your existing orifices and install spuds, and then re-drill smaller holes for the appropriate BTU rating for each burner. Then they can install the regulator and hose and even sell you a new and full 20# cylinder. Call around first and see which one can help you, as not all have serviceman that can do this particular job. Hope this helps. Douglas
