Hey guys, propane newbie here. I have a Masterbuilt electric smoker that went tits up after 6 years with a power issue. Decided to convert it to propane using an unused side burner from a grill, the frugal approach! The electric box is well insulated, and so I cut a 3x6 vent (sliding damper) on the bottom opposite side of the top vent thinking that fresh air would help cool/adjust things. After 5 minutes the temp with the burner on low was at 330 and climbing!
I saw this post using the needle valves to lower the gas flow, and also about blocking holes in the burner with screws, I'm going to try these.
Question: The electric unit has a 2" diameter dampened vent at the top, do I need a larger outlet vent in the top also?
