Regulator mod help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I changed out the stock hose regulator with one from Bayou Classic.  When I took it off I saw it had a connecter bushing with a very

small orifice.  I did not use that with the new hose not sure if it was needed.  When I tried it out it looks like I have lost nearly all control

with the control knob on the smoker.  Now it will blaze like a turkey cooker.  It seems I need to use the brass connecter with the small opening.  My hope was the new hose will allow me to get  more low volume control and temps below 170 -180 range.  This mod seems to be used a lot from what I read here.  Thanks

What piece of equipment are you trying to modify?   Pictures would be helpful.  It sounds like you replaced your low pressure regulator with a high pressure regulator with out an orifice in it.  I would suggest re installing your old regulator, and installing a Needle valve in line.  Go here for a needle valve. http://www.bayouclassicdepot.com/misc_propane_burner_parts.htm.  Hope this helps.

Yes, get a needle valve like this one that I use on my gasser to achieve lower temps.
