Thread Starter 
I have a walmart upright popane smoker have been reading on the forums that some of you have installed a thermostat. Can someone shead some lite on how and maybe some pics on how this was done. Interested in doing this to mine. I have trouble maintaining lower temps. in the summer months.

Please foregive me, but I'm a little confused over the word Thermostat. Did you mean thermometer? If you meant thermometer, we have plenty of thread and posts on that subject. They are not very expensive, and they are really easy to install. Good luck my fellow smoker.

I guess what i'm looking for is a way to convert the smoker to have a pilot light and a temp. control that will allow the burner to cut in and out.

some people have installed a sentry turkey fryer thermostat on their smoky mountain smokers...i have been wanting to do that as well

i dont think its very hard to install

and yes with this mod you will be able to set it at the temp you want and it will regulate it for you

I am building just such a control..and you have to have a pilot light or igniter and thermocouple saftey interlock for shutdown in event of pilot light or igniter failure, or yer building a bomb. I know of no way around this in a gas fired closed system.
On edit: That does not necessarily mean there isn't such a thing.
