Hello: Gus

It is possible to convert a grill/bbq either way. All one needs to do is change out the orifices and replace the appliance regulator.

If your making a new purchase, buy the one already set up to use the fuel you have. Makes it much easier...

Thank you for your advice, finally I got an answer that makes me understand the convertion. It is very strange why they don't have the Natral Gas grills more easy to get them, they are much safer that the propane, reason is that one time hoock up and on the propane every time you refills a chance of bad hook up is there.

Hello Gus

There are several reasons why propane is more popular with outdoor gas appliances. Ease of usage is one. No piping to connect to and no local safety codes to meet.

Portabilty to move them around is another reason. Especially with BBQ's and patio heating appliances.

Almost all buy it and take it home outdoor gas appliances can be assembled by the purchaser with simple commonly found around the home tools. Good Do-It-Yourself projects...

Not all homes have natural gas and fewer yet have natural gas outlet gas piping to patios and yards. A lot depends on which gas fuel source is most commonly used in the area you live in.

In many parts of the country both fuel types are carried in stock by retailers becuase both fuel sources are commonly available. Not so in many other parts of the country.

Hope this explains the reasons well.
