Natural Gas grill - Yes or No??
Posted by Kingwood Tiger on 10/1 at 2:48 pm
When we had our house built last year I had them run a line to our patio just in case I ever wanted to do a natural gas grill. Any of you have one, and how would you compare to LP?

I have one. First thing the purists will say is that it screws up your cooking cause they put that egg smelling chemical in the gas. Dont believe it, grills just fine.

Its great for a BBQ pit and grill.

LP only for crawfish boiling rigs

Why wouldn't you use natural gas for that as well?

I know my grandpa always did.

Only issues I know of are that the BTUs are not as high but not anything you will really notice.

Now however if I forget to turn off a LP grill the worst that happens is that it burns until I run out of propane.. I wouldnt want to do the same with NG.

ETA I think you were looking at a Weber grill those come NG or LP so I believe the burners are taylored to the setup. Its a better setup than the LP grills with a converter as far as getting up in temp from what I have been told.

Will NG get hot enough to get a boil going as fast as LP?

LP = Liquid Propane.

yeah I was, but the one I saw at lunch today is LP, and you can't get a converter kit for Webers

Just about. There are some gas burners out there that can produce some serious heat.

We've got an alfresco natural gas built in. Like others stated it gets extremely hot quickly. I'm not sure if that is a result of the natural gas or the grill.

What are the benefits of NG over charcoal? I just looked up NG grills and they seem awfully expensive.

Probably the biggest advantage is the ease of use although a lot of people will say that cooking on charcoal tastes better

I have a Charbroil Infra Red and it had a NG conversion kit. It gets very hot. I bought it at Lowe's for about $400.

Nice grill, would buy again.

I've got the exact same thing. TEC with natural gas piped in.

Son?

Anyway, it works great and is really convenient.

I've got what looks to be a 1/2 inch gas line stubbed out on my patio. Is that big enough to power a grill?

I think Mine's a 1/2" as well, and my grill gets HOT!!!! I accidentally left it on overnight a couple of weekends ago and it was pushing 600 with all the burners on medium/med-high. With all burners (6 ) fully open, I can get it to about 700.

You have to get the natural gas conversion kit for starters. I have a big Viking that is 12 years old and it burns great and is always ready without the hassle of propane bottles. I also have a Weber Kettle and a Green Egg so I can burn charcoal when I want as well. I use all of them probably close to equal amounts. For crawfish, I have a gas connection on the patio with a quick connect. I bought a hose and regulator from Goodwood Hardware (even though I hate that douchebag) and ordered a stainless banjo burner with natural gas jets. This is the key to getting the pressure to bring it to a rapid boil. A regular LP burner won't get hot enough using natural gas.

It's an overall convenience and just cleaner. I prefer it and though it's a bit more expense upfront, I've not had to fill a propane bottle in a dozen years.
