Bought a gas fireplace log set and it is set up for natural gas I need it converted to propane.Anybody know of someone that can do this

If is straight forward operation. If you have the nat gas orifices they will install them, if not they will go get some that match the size or will drill out yours to the nat gas spec. Appliance repair on Calle Colon 1 block up from the Caraterra will come out. Telephone 766-2256    Actually most any plumber could do it.

You can buy a small adapter that fits the gas intake valve and reduces the amount of gas that can enter. The fireplace can then burn LP gas. They are not expensive. Most plumbers can do the job for you.

Natural gas is fed at a smaller pressure than propane, so to get the same heating value (usually measured in BTUs), a natural gas orifice has to be smaller than a propane one. article here I would try to get a plumber or appliance guy to install a new one.
