    most of them will come with the other jets and the regulator is typically an adjustable one with a spring nut set for nat or lp. check with the owners manual for the conversion info.

      I would say "it depends". I have seen a lot of BBQ where the regulator was not switchable, and no orifices included. Need to ask at the store before you buy it.

        Watch out what you're doing! Some of these cheapo 99 buck BBQs cannot be altered. In any event, when going from natural gas to LP, orifices MUST be changed (they will be many drill sizes smaller). Propane has much MORE BTUs per given quantity than Natural gas. (methyl, ethyl, pump, the block----> methane, ethane, propane, butane from highschool chemistry class).
        Hook a natural gas BBQ up to PROPANE and watch the FLAMES shoot out!

            I was looking at a bunch of LP bbq at the store this weekend. All have the regulator integral with the bottle connector. You could not easily convert that.

              What about the bras orifices? Did you see them? Were they removable?
