Charbroil 600 Gasser / Needle Valve

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've run into the same issue with high temps that a lot of people have and want to install the needle valve. I've seen conflicting ways on how to do it.

I already have detached my regulator hose from my burner. Can I just install the valve directly onto the burner and then reattach the regulator hose?

I've read some content stating a high pressure hose needs to be between the valve and the burner.

The needle valve can go anywhere between the regulator and burner. Just turn on the built in gas valve to high and control the flame with the needle valve. You will be surprised how well you can regulate the CC temperature. Mine will stay within 2-3 degrees all day. good luck

My original regulator is a low pressure one. Any idea why some say get a high pressure hose and place needle valve between it and the regulator?

I see no reason to replace the hose that came with the smoker unless it is damaged. It seems some folks tend to go overboard thinking safety. Nothing wrong with that way of thinking.

Thanks.  Will probably just throw the valve directly onto the burner.  I guess one alternative is to buy one of the universal hoses at Lowes and run that from the burner.

Thanks. I actually have a high pressure regulator. Am working on finding a hose with a female end to go onto the burner.

My burner and regulator



Electing to try the needle valve first. Got part ordered. Bought 5 fittings to convert everything from 1/8 to 1/4 to pair with the valve.

Here is the mod. Little pricier than most I've read about. I had to get three sizes of fittings to go with the needle valve and new hose.

Doing a dry run now. It's definitely running cooler. Wood isn't even burning yet.
