Hi, I'm Jim and I'm located in Phoenix, Az. Just bought a GOSM and seasoned it today. In the process I noted some potential problems related to ambient air temp. It was 100 degrees today and seasoning a smoker at 125 was impossible. The ambient in my smoker was 130 before seasoning. I think all went well. Had nice light smoke for the seasoning period. Now my question. Has anyone put a needle valve on the outlet of the regulator to fine tune the flame. My concern is whether the regulator on the GOSM will be adversely affected if the needle valve puts back ppressure on the regulator. All that and I ain't smoked a darn thing yet.
