You not only have to have the correct thread size, you also have to have the correct orifice size. The size of the orifice varies from grill to grill which is why "universal kits" don't work on all grills. You will have to contact the manufacturer and get the correct orifice size, or get the orifices from the manufacturer. If you need help, let me know.

I would like to convert a grill that was used on natural gas back to propane. Can I just purchase a regulator and hose and be good, or do I need to change anything else on the grill?


Burner orifices must be resized or adjusted to accommodate higher pressure LP.
Air shutters should be opened all the way to allow maximum air to gas ration.

The "nozzles", as you called them are actually the burner orifice. If you remove the burners and look back into the control panel, you should see the orifices that the plumber installed. They unscrew with a nut driver to be removed. Do this one at a time, installing the LP Gas Orifice immediately after removing the Natural Gas one. Be careful not to mix them up and reinstall the Natural Gas ones.
You will also need a LP Gas Regulator/Hose Assembly to connect to the grill tank, that you will be using. You can pick one up at any hardware store or home improvement center that sell grills & accessories. It runs about $30.00.

Below is a link to the Owner's Manual. But, I'm not sure it will be of help in changing the orifices. But, it's good to have for future reference. You can download and print it.

Natural gas Bril King BBQ . Want to convert to Propane.


Unfortunately, there are no gas conversion kits available for any Broil King Grills. That's why they always make a Propane Model and a Natural Gas Model. In fact, Onward Manufacturing Co, the manufacturer of Broil King, don't recommend that conversions be attempted.

I'm sorry, I wish I had better news for you,

Do you use lava rocks or just use propane flame?


Hello, There should be vaporizer tents over each burner. As a reference you can got to website: http://www.charbroil.com/bps/char-broil/char-broil/knowledge/7001189_463453306_english_37f8ef8b-0_.pdf

and refer to the bottom of page 9 or find your model number and enter it into the search bar at the top right of the Char-Broil website: http://www.charbroil.com/

You can order needed parts from there or from Sears which I have found to be quite competitive on their prices.

If you found this helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!

I dunno, I have not done the conversion for this particular barbecue, but the kit is listed in the parts list for that barbecue,

It would be appropriate at this time to print the conversion instruction manual and take it to a local 'guy' a gas fitter.
The instruction .pdf shows them converting 3, 5, 7 burner units with the same kit, and states
  • Insert orifice removal tool provided with kit onto firebox burner openings and unscrew orifices from valves.
    Save removed orifices for later if converting back to LP Tank Gas.
    The valves are designed to work with natural gas once orifices are removed.
    Do not replace any Orifices when using natural gas.
    NOTE: your gas conversion kit comes with replacement orifices for the Rotisserie Burner ONLY, do not use on Tube burner valves.

seems the same 2-burner kit is for all barbecues
I think the person on the phone messed up, but a gas-guy would know for sure

All lpg(propane) fueled barbecues can be converted to natural gas some easier than others.
The process requires changing the tiny lpg nozzle with a larger low pressure ng nozzle,
Charbroil web site lists the kit -available parts for the grill http://www.charbroil.com/consumer/product_detail_e.aspx?ProductID=438
the gas conversion kit from half way down the page
http://www.charbroil.com/consumer/product_detail_e.aspx?ProductID=1722
for $69.99

  • SHOULD be done by a licensed person for safety & insurance reasons,
