The reason I am asking is because I, like quite a few others I am reading, are having a tough time getting down to 225. I would love to have 225 my temp when I am about 1/2 way between the "low" and "medium" setting on the burner so I have some room above and below. Also plan on smoking some salmon this year and will need to go lower. When I turn the GOSM to high, the burner absolutely ROARS. I can not imagine ever needing that much heat. I think it would burn through a tank of propane in no time. Like the GOSM BBQ grill I have, it is just way too hot. One of my best friends is a welder. For me, I think the best solution is to have him plug every 4th or 5th hole in the burner. I have no doubt he could do it and it would work. I have one of the needle valves ordered and will give it a try, but I think it maybe trying to get to small of a flame out of the big holes might not work well. I think it would be more effective to reduce the number of flames and keep them bigger rather than to try to get the flame out of each hole smaller. Again, my only concern is if I will regret not being able to run the smoker hotter later. I do understand that it is summer and things will change a lot when the weather is freezing out. I already have plans to build a wooden cover that will cover the top, back and two sides to keep cold wind off of the smoker and provide a little insulation. What do you think?
