Question about Brinkmann Grilling
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.

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 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!
