masterbuilt 2 door smoker temp problem
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
From what I've seen, there isn't a regulator assembly with needle valve that you can purchase and install as easily has installing a needle valve yourself. It's a pretty fast process that I'd say takes maybe 10 minutes going slowly, including the time it takes to do a soapy water leak test.
When I did mine, I saw posts 21 and 23 in this thread: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/188229/needle-valve-mod/20 and I liked the idea of adding more length to my propane hose so I went with that. I'm really happy with my setup and I can nail the common cook temps like 225, 250, 275 without any issue.
The more commonly used needle valve is made by Bayou Classic available here: http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-Brass-Control-Valve/dp/B0016IZZZU
And it looks like this when installed: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/188229/needle-valve-mod#post_1356945
No problem! What did you end up going with? The Bayou Classic valve, or the LASCO one?
Thanks again for the information, greatly appreciated.
