    Homebrewers Roll-Call

    No problem. I lost a bunch of weight, got back in shape and, I havent had a gout flair up in four years. I wouldn’t trade how I feel now for brewing again.

    Homebrewers Roll-Call

    My staple was a hearty IPA. But my favorite was a Pyramid Snowcap clone. I only made that a couple times a year. It was a lot more work that an IPA. It required a lot of grain. Did I say I miss it?

    Homebrewers Roll-Call

    I haven’t visited the page in a long while. I just got an email notification so I thought I’d check in. I stopped brewing and drinking a few years ago for health reasons. Man I miss brewing! I see some really nice clever setups. Nice work.

    HP Regulator

    Well, I made the wind skirts. I have used the smoker once since I did that mod. It was breezy that day but not really windy. The wind skirts under breezy conditions worked great.

    HP Regulator

    OK. So here's what's going on. I couldn't get the original burner, valve and regulator to work consistently so I replace all three. I replaced the regulator with an adjustable one that goes from 0 - 20 psi. I added a needle valve to the out side of the regulator and replaced the burner with...

    HP Regulator

    I have a Landmann® 38" Two Drawer Vertical Gas Smoker that I really like BUT, this time of year I have a hard time getting the temp up past 250°. I have a High Pressure regulator that I was thinking about replacing the Low pressure one with. Anyone here ever do this?

    cleaning your mes 30?

    I clean the racks in the garage sink.  Tap water as hot as it comes out of the tap with OxiClean.  The stuff is amazing.  If I were going to clean the inside of my smoker, I would also use Oxiclean in a spray bottle and a nozzle on the hose, or maybe even a pressure washer .  My 2¢.

    Any particular reason you DON'T homebrew?

    Well, that's true with most hobbies.  But with making beer, you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Seriously though, the big expense is getting the equipment, once you have that you really can save money (the ingredients for the two 10 gallon batches I mentioned above only cost $90).  And...

    Any particular reason you DON'T homebrew?

    Haven't in a couple years but, I just got home from the brew store with ingredients for two 10 gallon batches.  Going to brew the day after thanks giving.

    Mods to my new Landman 3895GWLA

    I've seen that thread before, nice work.  I live in the SF Bay Area where temps only get to freezing a couple times a year and, I don't usually smoke when it's that cold.  I don't really think I need to insulate my smoker. One of the main reasons I join forums like this is to see what other...

    Mods to my new Landman 3895GWLA

    Yeah, that's my only complaint about this smoker.  The temp control is very sensitive.  I'll have to look into the needle valve idea.  I suspect any needle valve with the open ends the same diameter as the gas hose will work?  Then just hose clamp them in place? @Lamar I really like the...

    Mods to my new Landman 3895GWLA

    Forgive my ignorance, but why put a needle valve in the gas line?  Unless it's to be able to fine tune the temperature.

    Yeah, bottling gets old really quick.  Kegging your beer is the only way to go.

    UPDATE - Weber (the company...) rocks!!! RE: New WSM bent, need advice on if this is normal and how

    If it were me, I'd contact Amazon.  They also have great customer service.

    1.5 Hours per Pound @ 225º ?

    I use the clip that came with the probe and clip to the rack that the drip pan is on, and yes I make sure the probe isn't touching anything.

    1.5 Hours per Pound @ 225º ?

    Elevation, I know that as elevation increases boiling point changes. I just wanted to include that for those who might see that as a possible reason. The meat was at 43 when I put it in the smoker.

    1.5 Hours per Pound @ 225º ?

    OK.  So I rechecked the thermometer accuracy and the smoker probe (in boiling water) reads 214º as does and one of the meat probes also reads 214º.  The other meat probe reads 212º.  My elevation is about 100 feet and I used tap water. I attach the smoker probe to a rack one slot below the meat...
