The Natural Gas conversion kit was easy to install in a reasonable time. I was concerned that it would not produce enough heat at the grill, but with proper warm up it more than met my expectations. It is so nice to know that you will not run out of fuel while BBQing.

The kit contained items I did not need, and the gas hose was a little short for my particular application. It would be nice if you could allow your customers to compose their own conversion kits so you get exactly what you need. I loved the simple tool for installing the natural gas orifices, as well as the included selection of orifice inserts. After some experimentation, I found that further modification to the orifice diameter for both burners were indicated. I increase the orifice diameter to 2mm with excellent\ results. I can now bring the temperature of the grill up to 575 degrees fahrenheit using natural gas.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by JoeD Flexable line and connector, in this kit, was easy to install to my gas grill
It was easy to install the flexible gas line and disconnect to a grill other than the proprietary grill for which it was designed (extra parts were discarded). I bought this conversion kit because it was on clearance sale and was less expensive than the line and disconnect designed for my grille.

the conversion kit is ok I needed it because natural gas but the reason I took the survey was to tell you about the true inferred grill I bought. every time I go to a place that sells your grills I look for the one I bought and tell them this is the best one ever no more burnt food everything is moist and juicy not dried out like you get with and open flame. that always been my problem. the flame never touches the meat. this is the best idea you guys ever had. I still have my 3 burner grill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Jefe Natural Gas has its downsides
Overall this conversion kit is a reasonably good product. The quick disconnect coupling on the hose is nice and seems to work well so far. I can see it becoming a problem down the road if it corrodes some and is coupled and uncoupled many times. But for now, its fine. The biggest problem I have with this conversion is the loss of range of heat control with the Red Grill. The Red is great to start with because it can go extremely hot or can be used to BBQ low and slow. Charbroil advertises that the BBQ setting gives you roughly 300F cooking temps and the Rotisserie setting roughly 250F. Well, once you install this kit, I don't think you can get that low anymore. I left all three burners at the new Natural Gas lowest Rotisseri setting and the thermometer reads some 325F after letting it stabilize for along time. The knob bezels make the low setting not so low anymore. I think Charbroil was concerned about the flame blowing out and they went a little too conservative. I think some changes to the bezels are in order. Home-made changes might not be that hard to accomplish.
The only other problem I had was that the box was missing the 4 screws its supposed to come with. I had to go to the other hardware store to get some good quality stainless steel screws. They could have fallen out of the box during shipping since the box wasn't even taped shut.
Installation was pretty easy once you get a NG gas line run within a few feet of your grill location. I'd just really like to be able to turn the flame down a little more.
