Propane Temp Controller

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Is there a automatic temp controller kit for a propane smoker? Looking for something that ignites and turns off the propane burner at a set temp

Have you tried a needle valve to control the gas flow to the burner ???    I use a dimmer switch on my electric element to control the temp....

 

You will probably have to find a burner that on "high", holds the smoker at near max. temp. you are looking for...  Then it will fully adjust to the lower temps.....

 

AND, you will have to install a "flame out" detector to turn off the gas when the flame goes out, or you could have a neighborhood leveling bomb.....

I have looked into it for my smoke vault-pricey. If I was still going that route I'd be looking for a free or cheap propane stove and gut it

I used a pid controller, solenoid valve, safety valve, thermoprobe,and thermocouple to control temps on my home built.

 

Here's the thread.

I used this thread as a guide when I did it.

Not cheap but safe and reliable. Make sure it's SAFE first. The neighbourhood will thank you.
