Switching from gas insert to wood burning insert

We have been researching wood burning inserts over the net and find all of the references starting with the phrase, "...designed for use in masonary fireplaces...". We currently have a gas fireplace insert and would like to switch to a wood burning style-is this possible?

While I don't think it is possible due to a gas fire will have a controlled burn as opposed to wood fire, I would look up the specs of the insert. If you have no luck there, seek the advise of a fireplace shop.

I will say this, if you gas insert has any knockouts removed or any part drilled out for the installation of a gas line, I wouldn't switch it over.
