Question about Weber Genesis Silver B Grill
OK - you may not like this answer, but it is what is is :^)
Its common to find kits that convert propane to natural gas (NG) but not the other way around. This is because NG has less energy per square foot than propane, therefore, the holes in your NG grill controls and burners will be bigger to move more gas and get the BTU's you need.
When you convert from propane to NG, you can simply drill the holes bigger and remove the regulator. But the reverse is not practical because you can't make the holes in a NG grill smaller without buying all new burners and control knobs. I guess that's the bottom line - your "kit" is simply to replace the burners and controls with propane-specific parts. You might be better off to just buy a new grill by the time you go through all that. If you have a Weber, their web site has all the manuals and part numbers you would need.
Keep in mind that propane tanks are under higher pressure and you MUST have a regulator. I've heard of some people that simply slap a regulator on their NG grill, but you will not get even burning or proper performance (again because the holes will be too big). In my opinion, it's simply not worth the danger to you or your family.
