Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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

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!
