Just bought a MB 2 door duel fuel 30" vertical smoker, been cruising through here doing lots of research. I have no idea about setting dampers, temperatures seem pretty straight-forward, but regulating sounds like it is about experimenting. I just put it together and haven't had a chance to season it yet. I am considering the cast iron skillet or pounding down the original wood bowl and I have ordered a cover, 1/2" x 1/8" Nomex High Temp BBQ gasket smoker pit seal, self stick, & Maverick M Remote Smoker Thermometer [ET-73] - Black. So what is a good starting smoke that is easy to manage?
On a side note: I also have a Ducane Stainless Series 5 burner grill, as well as LP Patio Heater. I am hoping to convert all of these to NG and have found the posts helping with that, just worried about actually taking the plunge and making it look respectable and not half-***ed. The orifice sizes are pretty easy to figure out, but all of the different fittings sounds like it can get pretty cobbled up. When we finished our basement I had enough forethought to have a yellow jacketed flex line ran out to the underside of the deck with an outdoor shut-off valve, but the distance between all equipment will span approx 10-12 feet. Any input/pictures of multiple appliances/equipment fed from single line? Manifold? Additional Flex-Line with T's?
Thanks and hope to learn a lot from all of you!
