Converting Charcoal to Gas

8 posts in this topic

I am new to this forum, but I have a question for anyone out there who could help. I have two Weber charcoal grills. I am thinking about trying to convert one to a LP grill so I can build a "cart" in which I could put both of them into and have the luxury of a charcoal and a gas grill. Has anyone ever heard of doing this? Any plans on how to convert one of the Webers to a gas grill?

 

If I am out of my BBQ mind, someone please tell me, because I can really see this in my mind's eye. Thanks for any help, directions or suggestions.

Welcome PlantMan

You mean well , but yes you are out of your mind :)

Not really

But what you want to do cant be done charcoal to gas. You can however go the other way.

The reason you cant go charcoal to gas is because of how Weber gas grills are made. You could do it without Weber parts but that would really be a waste.

What you might want to do however is get a Weber Q 200 series grill and put that in a cart to be next to your charcoal grill.

 

If you didnt have a grill at all then I would tell you to get a Char-Broil Duo grill.

It is actually designed to be a charcoal grill on one side, a gas grill on the over side and it also has a real full size smoker chamber to boot

Im with Ronald, you most likely could find some internals from a LP grill and rig them into your weber. but it would be cheaper to just buy a good little grill and marry that up to your coal grill, the Weber Ronald mentioned is a great grill and has a fantastic warranty. then you could start brain storming some good grill recipes :)

charcoal is great. i got back into it this year and love it. my wife wonders why i had to buy a new NG BBQ if all we needed was a $10 Kijiji Kettle.

 

anyway, it's nice to have both. they are both great for different applications.

There is a product I have seen that are a set of rounded burners placed inside a weber kettle and effectively makes it a gas kettle. Darn if I can't remember where I saw these. Looked pretty cool though

Who in their right mind would want to go from charcoal to gas? Gas is what you use for a stove, not a grill ;)
