Question

answer 1
Yes, you would have to replace the reulator with a regulator made for natural gas.

answer 2
Yes, the orifice will have to be drilled out for natural gas up to the 15,400 BTU level. Natural gas is lower pressure so drilling it will allow more gas. Any licensed gas contractor should be able to help you with this easily.

answer 3
The difference of liquid propane (LP) versus natural gas basically comes down to two things, the size of the jet orifice, and the pressure regulation. While I don’t know for sure, I doubt that the jet can be changed, and the regulator would probably not be correct either. Bottom line, can it be changed? Almost anything can if you are willing to spare the time, effort and cost. Is it worth it? Probably not, you can buy a 100 lb. LP cylinder that will last you lifetime.

Question

How many hours per pound for pork or beef @ 225 degrees?

I've read that most smokers take 1.5-2 hours for pork and beef cuts. I've smoked 2 beef briskets and 10 pork shoulders and each take 3+ hours per pound.

Per the Owner’s Manual for Pork at 225°F (107°C) will take about 3+ hours in a preheated smoker. See Chart for Brisket 3-4 lbs 200°F takes about 3-4.5 hours cooking time. http://masterbuilt.com/pdf/manuals/20051311_GS30D_IM_080911JH.pdf Thanks

Question

What is the lowest temp setting on this smoker?

I plan on also smoking a lot of fish also, so I would like to know if this smoker can be utilized at a low temp, or should I have an electric smoker for fish smoking.

answer 1
We plan on smoking fish as well and the temperature is sub 200 degrees. The temperature varied between mid 100 degrees and 230. However, we noticed a variation depending upon how new the wood chips were in the process. We have not tried fish yet. More to come.

answer 2
Per Masterbuilt: On a low setting, the smoker should heat at about 100-200 degrees. Although, the electric smokers are easier to regulate, fish has to be smoked at a lower temperature and it is easier to produce higher amounts of smoke at a low temperature in a propane unit. Thanks
