Blackstone pizza oven fueled by natural gas?
« on: August 26, 2014, 08:49:01 PM »
The more I read about this oven, the more intrigued I become by it.  However, I am disappointed to see it is not dual fuel  ready out of the box.  I already have a natural gas line run out to my grill on the porch and it would be easy to put a split in it.

Is anyone currently fueling their Blackstone oven with natural gas?  Does Blackstone make a conversion kit?  If not, is it safe to convert it yourself and what would you need to buy to do so?

I converted my grill.  It was easy.  I just drilled out the orifice using a conversion chart I found online.

I doubt it can be converted. The Blackstone has a high pressure burner. Natural gas in your house is low pressure. From what I've seen of the design, it  needs a HP burner.

Obviously, natural gas is more convenient (especially, if you already have a line for it). But, propane does offer significantly higher BTU values, does it not?

Yes, which is why you use a larger orifice with natural gas. That doesn't fix the pressure problem though.
