    Is there a automatic temp controller kit for a propane smoker? Looking for something that ignites and turns off the propane burner at a set temp

    Have you tried a needle valve to control the gas flow to the burner ???    I use a dimmer switch on my electric element to control the temp....

    You will probably have to find a burner that on "high", holds the smoker at near max. temp. you are looking for...  Then it will fully adjust to the lower temps.....

    AND, you will have to install a "flame out" detector to turn off the gas when the flame goes out, or you could have a neighborhood leveling bomb.....

  3. I have looked into it for my smoke vault-pricey. If I was still going that route I'd be looking for a free or cheap propane stove and gut it
