Default Natural Gas and Propane Grills?

Does any existing grill on the market allow both natural gas and propane as a fuel source?

Natural gas and propane appliances (including grills) operate at different pressures and require different size orifices to accomodate the different pressures of the gases. Natural gas is supplied at a lower pressure and requires a larger orifice. Propane at a higher pressure and a smaller orifice.

Many grills will operate on either gas with the appropriate orifice.

A friend bought a gas grill from a big box store that was propane or natural gas. When he opened the box it only had the orifice for propane. The store told him, either propane or natural gas but not both. He contacted the manufacture and was sent the conversion kit at N/C. I haven't seen a grill that will burn propane or natural gas but then I haven't been looking
