    I am not a gasser.  One will be by soon.

    The addition of a needle valve for control seems to be common?

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Yes  a needle valve can come in very handy to help tweak your pesky gas burner when they want to run to hot.

    Chef Jimmy's got it.

    If you don't have time to monitor a smoker, use your oven.

    Its funny how there are so many folks out there that are not into the actual smoke, I find that to be part of the enjoyment of smoking / "Q" ing

    Using a propane smoker is no different than using a gas grill, as far as the mechanics go, does a gas grill have a  thermostat in it?, most Ive seen don't.

    When I use my GOSM I check on it once an hour if that, temperature barely fluctuates, as long as the weather remains constant.

    With that said, there are a few who have made this mod and Chef Jimmy pointed one out

    Also Halifax has a tutorial on how he did his and it is rather interesting.
