There is always this option:

It requires this valve:

I have 3 sets. I am STILL in the process of mounting them on my cart. Life has been a little crazy.

Is the "orifice" that needs to be drilled out, the brass looking piece that attaches the gas line hose to the burner? I never quite understood what people were drilling out. Is the idea that propane is high pressure, so it forces itself through a small hole, while natural gas is not so it requires a larger hole to pass through on it's way into the burner?

I cant remeber who, but some one else posted this guy's BBQ NG conversion, and it is a great DIY guide. I am going to be switching my Brew rig and my BBQ over to NG.

hey i am curious if you have used this setup at all or have seen in in action. I am trying a new setup for 18 gallon boils (i do 15g batches) and was looking into the hurricane, but its been sold out for a while and i would love to get it rolling. This might be a better option considering the boil volume. any suggestions would be much appreciated.

You've got it mostly right but also at the same pressure, propane has more BTU capacity. So, it's pressure and energy density which makes the orifice for propane smaller. If you have an orifice that is too small, you will have a small flame once you get the fuel/air mix dialed in. If it's too big, you will not be able to get enough air into the mix and/or the pressure at which the fuel enters is not enough to pull the required air into the damper. I think trial and error is fine in that regard if you have an assortment of fine increment drill bits. Just keep going bigger until you have the largest blue flame with the air damper nearly full open. Closing the damper a bit will add orange tips to the flame and opening too much will make the burn noisy and the flames will hover over the burner.

My plan is to buy this:

Then drill out the orifices for NG.

I figure even if the stand is not the highest quality it should be good for a year or so of batches until I am ready to build something nicer. I like the idea of it folding into itself.
