    I recently tried to use my masterbuilt porpane smoker . When starting it I noticed that the flame was low and I could not build any heat. I turned it off ,took out burner and blew it out with an air compressor to make sure I did not have any cob webs blocking the flow. This still did not fix the problem , the best temp I could get was about 175. I have changed tanks with the new one being just refilled. Still no better than 200. Could this be a pressure regulator problem or what

    I had this issue one. It was the metal mesh screen in the regulator. It had built up moisture and rusted so I wasn't getting proper flow to the burner.

    Call masterbult and they might send you a new regulator or have other things for you to try.
