This site has a couple and a few more that they will convert to NG for free at Tejas Smokers.

I"d write/call Brinkman. They might sell the proper venturi to do the job. I don't know what the tradeoff would be. Propane is more expensive and more efficient than NG.. so, I believe it would take longer with NG to do the job.. ie a lot of NG. I, personally, like the speed of propane. This is an awesome burner.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I just ordered this burner at home depot for 25 dollars free shipping. What sort of pressure regulator is on this... The burner looks the same as my Brinkmann turkey fryer but thats only rated at 45000 btu

I believe it's an LP regulator, but it will get hot fast. Having used it for a while I can tell you that the only down side is it will rip through propane tanks (I usually only get 2-3 AG, 60 minute brews out of a tank; that includes heating mash and sparge water, etc.). Other than that it has served me really well since the original post. Great price you got on that too!

Do you know what pressure the regulator is though? The one for my fryer is 5psi. No that it really matters.... I was really just looking for burner and a hose with a regulator and stumbled across this. I thought it was a good deal... I might not hack it up after all

The manual for it can be found here. On page 7 it states that the regulator is rated for a maximum output pressure of 10psi.

OK cool that's pro ally where they get 100k BTUs then. Mine is only 5psi so the would make sense.
