What do I need to convert my propane grill to burn hydrogen?

I see a lot of conversions from LP to NG, but not hydrogen. Any help would be great!

Thanks

The last answer given by community user about Natural Gas Grill is really very helpful for me.

Hydrogen will burn at an intense heat that will melt your bbq!

Hydrogen is 100x more explosive than petrol the potential for disaster is huge. Why not use charcoal? Readily available, cheap and won't explode.

I hate to say it but at this time I believe that LP gas is both cheaper and safer than hydrogen. Hydrogen blows up pretty easily and it is not tagged with sent like propane so you can't smell it leaking. It is also lighter than air so it would accumulate in the hood of a grill and blowup in your face. Propane is heavier than air so it flows down to the ground if it leaks.

That is true, but the "scent" is what I taste and would like to get rid of. Also the by-product of H2 is water which cooks in a moist heat which is great for slow cooking without drying out your food.
LPG burns to water and CO2

Thanks...but I do not have access to LPG hook up where I live and a tank is more portable....
Propane bottles are LPG

lol..you are right..I totally read that wrong!!!....sorry :)
Do you have a good source for hydrogen fuel tanks?

Since Hydrogen isn't readily available from your local pumping station, manufactures haven't made hydrogen conversion kits readily available.

Yes, any gas retailer or welding supply store....airgas, nordan smith....etc.
Since the old "town gas", made by coal pyrolysis was 50% hydrogen and 35% methane, the burners for that would probably work for pure H2 as well, though you'd need to consult a combustion engineer.

I haven't seen conversion kits to Hydrogen available either... but you might want to check out these resources. In the first link is a URL where they say you can view a video and get more info.
