I am interested in making the conversion some day as well. NG is just so much cheaper and I hate dragging the tanks to get them filled if I can just tap a line into my house supply. I'll be watching this thread to see what you find.

Do a quick search, there are a few threads with lots of good info.

Some guys use the multi-jet burners...I found them incredibly frustrating to work with! I'm much happier with my hurricane and converted propane stove, they work great and burn extremely clean with a wide range of control.

I keep tossing these out as a suggestion. I have three of them.

3-Ring Burner (natural gas) - CHINESE WOK RANGES - RANGES - EQUIPMENT

To use them you will need two of these valves, though.

1/8" Gas Burner Valve

You will also need some pieces of 1&1/4 inch pipe, and 3) 1&1/2 to 1&1/4 reducers. The payoff is plenty of heat for my 25 gallon pots.

I'm still working on my rig, and can't offer any video.

Those burners look interesting. Keep us posted once you get the rig up and running. I'm always interested in seeing what others are doing with NG.
