    What sort of modifications needs to be made (if any) to a propane barbeque or stove to work on Natural Gas?

    Thanks, George

    You need to swap out the orifice and regulator.

    Ayep. The propane is delivered at a higher pressure so the orfices are smaller than the ones used for NG.

    you can try it without doing anything and see how well it works. You will have a lesser output of gas and therefore, heat, but it may suffice for your use with zero $$ input additional.
