Are you planning to use it as a needle valve to allow you to get your smoker to lower temps?  You may want to check out the one they sell at Bayou Classic Depot.  Sorry, I don't know how to add a hot link directly to their site.  Someone should come along shortly to direct you, or you can just Google it.

Indeed it is a valve, it should work. What are your intentions with it?

That's not what I've seen people use.  I don't think that's a needle valve, looks like it works more like a ball valve with a 90 degrees range of motion.

A needle valve is needed if you want fine control to get a small flame.

Use the search feature and type in needle valve or go to the propane section of the forums and look for Mods/Modifications.  It'll give you and idea of the type of needle valve you need and the link where to purchase it.  Some of the guys there also provide a parts list for what you are trying to do.  Take care.....

Yes the "second one down" is a needle valve and that is what we use, but you can buy the same thing at Bayou Classic for $5, also I haven't seen any 1/8" needle valves, we use adapters to adapt the 1/4" to the 1/8" female on the regulator.


There is some very good info in the propane section with parts lists and pics, just do a 'needle valve' search.

You can get Needle vales at most hardware stores. Atleast around here you can.
