Hi Ya'll

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Well, I just found this forum and figure to have a good time here. Been smoking for about five years, and have worked a good number of the kinks out...but always more to learn, right?

Dutch...if you're out there I was reading some older threads and you mentioned having a great outdoors propane unit which is what I use. Did you ever have a problem keeping the temperature low enough in yours? It seems no matter what I do, the temp keeps climbing to 250 plus.

Any advice on remedies would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome if you are having trouble maintaining low temps install a needle valve to control the propane. I found that the control on the unit would not go low enough.

Thanks Jack....does that needle valve just go in-line?
Are they readily available or is it a diy project?

Welcome to the forum Dave, I have one of the older GOSM's so maintaining low temp's has never been a problem. I can set the control to "Low" and have temps around 200*. It's the newer models that have come out in the last couple of years that have had temp control issues.

Then in-line needle valve that has been mentioned is one option. Check the Propane sub-forum for additonal tips.

Hoser here is something to try. With you knob set at the high position rotate left to off. Watch the flame at the low position first then judge accordingly. Play with it a little bit and you should be able to lower your temp. I have done it a couple of times but I don't cook at or smoke anything that low very often. I did some fish for a guy and that was how I got my temp down.
