Hello sir, my friend has a GOSM and I have a BBQ Grillware, we both installed the needle valve that cascadedad said to use. It works GREAT! I will try to find the link for you, but I can't do it till later. I think it came from, "Bayou Classics"? TerryGOSM Low Heat Fix (w/pics)
OK, as I promised.
I have only been able to get my GOSM
down to about 250* to 260* during the heat of the day (temps between 90* and 100*). So, as recommended in another thread, I purchased one of these.http://www.bayouclassicdepot.com/nv1...urner_part.htm
When I went to install it, the threads were not the right size.
I have been busy with work and coaching football so was unable to make it to the hardware store until this evening. The store closed at 8:00 and I squeaked in at 7:55 to get the two remaining pieces. The first photo is what it looked like after the valve was installed.
The next picture is the flame with the needle valve open which is the same flame as I had prior to installing the new valve. The last picture is the flame with the needle valve adjusted down. It works excellent and I think I could take my temperature WAY down low. Probably lower than 200 now without any problem.
So, I would highly recommend this mod to everyone. From what I have read, MOST of the small GOSMs will barely make it down to 225 when it is hot ouside and a lot have trouble getting down to 250.
Thanks for everyone that helped on this.
Oh, before you order one of these valves, you may want to check your hardware store. The store I went to had a couple different needle valves right where all the fittings were. I didn't even look to see if they would work as it was last call for checkout.
