    I have about 10 Q:,.....Nat. gas grill? How many feet from connection to grill? What size line are you using? If Prop. fuel did you change the orifices on the main burners to fire the Nat gas? There are some factors that need to be disclosed before I can tell You, "Yea, Why not" I did not mean this to be condescending,,...:-)

    Would the line be above or below ground? I had grill that was run off nat gas. Sure was nice not ever running out of gas. I think most of the better quality bbq grill cos. offer conversion kits.
  • That outdoor line

    needs to be corrosion protected or plastic pipe especially made for underground use. Get hold of your local propane folks who do a lot of this and they will fill you in on all you have to do.

    If it is natural gas which you state it is then contact the local gas company for instructions on installation and they will also many times help you with sizing.

    The line must be 12 to 18 inches deep and filled in with no rocks or debris which will damage the protective covering required for corrosion protection.

    They are right. You NEED to contact your gas supplier. Especially if propane, your K-factor as it is called which projects your fuel usage must be adjusted to prevent a run out, not to mention a quick disconnect with 100% shutoff must be installed to prevent accidental disconnect with gas leakage. Ether a Natural gas or Propane gas distributor will be able a size piping, suggest cathodic protection and installation requirements.
