Converting BBQ from propane to natural gas
I have a propane barbeque that I would like to convert to natural gas. I have a gas outlet that it can be connected to. (Previous owner had it installed.) I have a propane BBQ that I would prefer to not have to replace.
What needs to be done to make it ready for natural gas?
Is it essentially only the regulator that needs to be changed? The burners can remain unchanged?

This universal natural gas and regulator set can be used to connect your grill to your natural gas supply line, once your grill has been converted from LP (propane gas) to NG (natural gas). When connecting to residential natural gas supply, it may be necessary to increase a 3/8 in. service to 1/2 in. This is necessary because Nexgrill supplies an upgraded 1/2 in. hose system to ensure appropriate supply of gas.
Ordering the correct regulator and hose will ensure that the proper natural gas flow and pressure are maintained for your grill. To decide whether this set is appropriate for your grill, you will need to know the total BTU output of your grill. Please refer to your grill owner’s manual for further information on how to convert your grill from propane to natural gas.
Use the universal NG hose and regulator set to convert your Kirkland Signature™ propane grill (warehouse item #138972 and #138987) to a natural gas grill or for grills with total output of 90,000 to 130,000 BTU.
The universal natural gas hose and regulator set must be installed by a qualified and licensed natural gas technician.
