Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
Does anyone know if this is possible? I've seen conversion kits for other bbq's; never anything that says you can do this with a Weber. The bbq in question is about 10 years old. By the way, I cannot believe how great the condition of the bbq is after 10 years of use. The outside looks brand new, only when you lift the lid do you see it's been well used. Go Weber!
Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>

I have a Genesis, drilled out the 3 orifices to 1/16, got rid of the regulator, the regulator on your house will be your regulator and replace hose with a NG hose, you can use a dryer gas hose or what have,,worked first time...never have to get propane again

Or you could buy the guts for the natural gas model of the genesis silver B and just swap them http://www.ebay.com/itm/Weber-Genesis-Silver-B-Natural-Gas-Grill-Conversion-Manifold-Hose-New-/251152862915#vi-content

DON'T DO THIS YOURSELF! It regures a new regulator and the burner orifice needs to be drilled out. YOU have no idea what size to drill the orifice out to and you don't have the right tools, because a burner orifice drill kit is $120 (just the drill bits). A tank of propane is $12, why convert it in the first place? You might save $3 per year. I realize the tank weighs 48 lbs., full, but how far do you have to carry it? Please bring the grill to a BBQ retailer that provides service and let thme do this, if you must.

When going to NG, you lose the regulator. Also, you need to check the size of the orifices, ng sizes can be obtained from weber. Orifices should screw in on most bbqs. You should also not use the lowest setting on the burners as with ng it will prob be too low. NOTE: All orifices need to be altered, including rotisserie and side burners (if applicable)
