Natural gas model

If I have a natural gas model and want to convert to LP, do I just need to replace the manifold and regulator? New to gas setups.

Which gasser do you have?

If there is already a regulator on a NG grill its can possibly be adjusted to use propane. Then you just need a connection. (Summit models) 

Post some pics and your geneal location, if you do need a manifold/regulator and are close I may have a propane setup in the parts bin. (If you don't mind used)

Only downfall I have found in swapping is you need to store the tank on the outside if you want the scale to work and sometimes it makes the low med and high marks on your control panel off.

After looking at a LP to NG conversion kit, it does seem like it is just the manifold and regulator that need to be swapped. Thanks for your replies.

The red head is a manifold swap easy peasy. Let me know if you need any parts for that one like a tank scale or swing shelf parts.

The summit is an awesome cooker but its a parts hog and they aren't cheap. You may want to try an orifice swap on that one if the manifold is too expensive. Don't know tho haven't priced one for that model in awhile.

@Red_5_Wrangler, I am interested in the swing out shelf you mention.
