Is it easy to convert a pizza oven that works with Natural gas to Propane, what are the draw backs and is it easy to do?
thanks

It's not difficult to do IF you can get the proper size jet for propane. NG and propane use different size holes in the jet for efficient burning. The hole size for natural gas is about twice the size of a propane jet hole. It's a simply matter to remove and replace the jets although it may be needed to adjust the air to gas mixture for optimum efficiency.

sarduyjorge,

When I bought my deck oven it was for natural gas and my repairman converted it to propane.
