Converting CharBroil Propane Gas Grill to Natural Gas

I have a CharBroil gas grill that has a tank hooked up to it. I've just moved into a new home with a natural gas hookup on the patio. I've been told I need a Nitro Gas Orfice (2 since I have a side burner) and a quick connect hose and adapter. I cannot find this at either Home Depot or Loew's. Does anyone know where I can find this conversion kit??

Gina,

You might try Sears. I bought my grill from Sears already setup for natural gas (I think it is really a CharBroil) but had to buy the gas hookup (connectors, hose) extra.

We bought our grill from an appliance dealer & they did the conversion for us. Any appliance dealer that carries grills should have what you need.

You can maybe find out the right size drill bit for the orfice and just drill it out. Natural has orfice has to be bigger.

I tried to buy a new natural gas oriface a few years ago, and they wanted and arm & a leg for it.

I replaced my old natural gas grill with a new Kenmore natural gas grill recently. But the frame is too low on the new one and I wonder if any know if I need to get new hose and gas regulater. Where would get those parts?

Thanks

I don't know about the CharBroil, but I converted my Members Mark to NG a year ago by drilling the orifaces for the main burners to 5/64's and the back burner to 1/16th -- this may at least get you started in the correct direction.
When you convert to NG you do not need a regulator. One less thing to go out. ;->

Thanks autodoc, it turned out that they did not put a converter on the grill and just use tape to make the hose to bigger to fit in. I took the converter from my old grill and put it up to work. Thanks again.
