New Vertical smoker and meat location questions... - Page 2

post #21 of 23

I hadn't considered the gas flow rate as my presumption was that the rate was regulated by the control on the smoker itself.  Is that not the case?  I have always just thrown the gas wide open and then control the heat (and what I presumed was the flow) via the controls on the smoker.

Quite a number of people with Vertical propane smokers run into this.  Look in the propane smoker section for what is known as the needle valve mod.

 

In the mean time, you can probably control the heat by using the smoker control between the high and off settings.  It will be a little touchy, but it can be done.  Because you are turning the burner down so low, you will probably need a very good wind screen to prevent the flame from being blown out by the wind.

I'll definitely check into that mod.  I hadn't thought about the "between off and high" "hack". Definitely seems like it'd be touchy.  Thanks for the ideas!
