Question about Brinkmann Grilling

Natural gas conversion

I have a Brinkmann 810-366-s grill. I purchased a Brinkmann conversion kit, but Brinkmann says the grill cannot be converted from LP to natural gas. The "thread" diameter of the "conversion kit" orifices are small than the orifice I removed from the actual grill. Can I simply drill a larger diameter hole in the orifice and reinstall it in the grill?

Mr Taylor with all due respect natural gas is low pressure and WILL NOT explode like on TV or in the movies....as to drilling out the orifices, as long as you don't over do it, you will be fine. Most companies have a orifice chart on the website to assist you with selecting the proper bit size. You can simply use the ones that came with the kit as a gauge to get the size if not dead on, pretty darned close...happy grilling

If Brinkmann say the grill can't be converted there must be a reason and it would be unwise to jury-rig a conversion kit for another grill. Gas is an explosive substance, plus the mix of gas to air has to be in the correct percentage for a good burn.

SOURCE: Converting Weber from LP to Natural Gas

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.

SOURCE: Conversion kit for Weber Summit LP to Natural Gas

You can buy a conversion kit for $150.00 from the Weber Parts center. However you don’t need to purchase a conversion kit. You can drill out the Brass Orifices with a 1/16 drill bit you should be good up to 15,000 BTU. You do need a Natural Gas hose/regulator. After that you should be good to go!

Converting a natural gas Webber genesis bbq to propane. Can you buy a kit to convert?


Hello, Kevin -

Do you mean a Weber (not Webber) Genisis grill? If so . . . see the information from the Weber grill company regarding the conversion of a natural gas grill to propane here:

https://consumer-care.weber.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001730474-How-can-I-convert-my-grill-from-liquid-propane-LP-to-natural-gas-NG-or-vice-versa-


Bottom line:
The Weber company does not recommend it and does not provide a conversion kit.

Best wishes.

Need to convert our Q300 propane grill to natural gas. Do you sell conversion kits?


Unfortunately, Weber grills are not convertible from one gas type to another. There are no conversion kits available for your model or any Weber model gas grill.

To confirm this, go to the following link and on page 2 under Warnings, last paragraph, left hand column, you can confirm this, if you like.

http://help.weber.com/manuals/pdf_files_2011/Gas/Weber%20Q/Q300320_OwnersGuide_41060_021011.pdf


The only advantage to converting it to Natural Gas is not having to refill the grill tank. The downside, is that you will loose the heating capability that Propane has. It burns cleaner and hotter than Natural gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped you. Happy Grilling!!

Conversion kit to switch to natural gas on modelFG50069


The model you have (G50069) has been discontinued by Fiesta and replaced by model # FGF50069-584LP (they are very similar). Neither your model or the current model have a conversion kit available. You either purchase/purchased it as a Propane model or a Natural Gas model. Even the Owners Manual states that it can not and should not be converted from one fuel type to another. (See link below)

Hope this helped answer your question.

Where do i find propane to natural gas conversion kit for weber spirit e310 gril


Apparently, Weber does not make a conversion kit to convert the grill from propane or from natural gas to propane. According to the Owners Manual - "Liquid propane gas is not natural gas. The conversion or attempted use of natural gas in a liquid propane unit or liquid propane
gas in a natural gas unit is dangerous and will void your warranty." (From Page # 3 of the Owners Manual)

See below link.

BOUGHT A BRINKMANN 2545 GRILL LAST NIGHT. WE HAVE IT ATTACHED TO GAS LINE COMING FROM HOUSE. GRILL WILL LIGHT BUT IT IS A LITTLR FLAME AND THE OTHER BURNERS WILL NOT LIGHT?


If you have a high pressure 2lb LP Gas System feeding your house, you will need and inline regulator for you grill.

If you have Natural Gas, the grill will have to be converted to Natural Gas. You can do this by changing burner orifices. You can purchase them from Brinkman. That is, if Brinkman approves the change to Natural Gas. Some gas grills aren't convertible.
