Masterbuilt pro dual fuel problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just got the Masterbuilt Pro Dual Fuel smoker sold by Home Depot.

The propane regulator doesn't regulate very well. At the lowest setting I'm right at 300 degrees.

I know others here have had the problem. Has anyone talked to Masterbuilt about what seems to be an all too common problem?

I thought about buying a needle valve which a lot of folks suggest, but I resent like hell having to shell out another $20 - $30 or more to fix a problem that I shouldn't have in the first place. Know what I mean?

Any other fixes for this problem?

If there are no other solutions and I do get a needle valve, I know I need a Type 1 connector.

But does this smoker take a high or low pressure adjustable regulator? Any specific psi?

If Masterbuilt included a good regulator with this smoker l wouldn't have to bother you folks with all this. Sorry.

And thanks.

a needle valve would help out also I would get a cast iron pan and use it I have a 8" I use and it works great the reason  I use it so I can use wood chunks over chips the chunks smoke longer then the chips also the pan will help u control the temp because if I take the pan out I can get a higher temp then I can if I was to leave the pan it  works like a heat shield I bought my needle valve for $12

Do you folks think the regulator is bad? 300 deg. at the lowest setting seems to say so.

 

I think I'll call Masterbuilt and see what they say.

 

How is there customer service?
