Masterbuilt 20051311 modifications

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My issues:

Difficult to move, leaking doors, impossible to maintain consistant heat under 250 degrees, suseptible to drafts

Modifications:

Added casters

Sealed doors using Green Egg insulation

Installed LP needle valve, closed off 1/2 burner jets (#6 brass screws)

Reduced the lower vent opening

WHAT A DIFFERENCE...!

Excellent idea to plug 1/2 the burner holes....   using the needle valve with a reduced burner output must really give you excellent low temp control.....

What kind of temp control do you have now ???    Can you control the smoker near 80-100 deg. F  ??    If not, will you plug more burner holes ??  

I really like how you solved the problem of too many BTU's for that size smoker.....

I had no problem holding a consistant 200 for hours. Before the modifications, I was lucky to keep it at 260.

I have not tried (yet) any temps lower. Will post results when i do.
