Check the flame color when it's on. Blue tips are correct. If the tip is orange or any other color but blue, the air mixture is out of adjustment. Check the owners manual for instructions on making this adjustment
Looks like too much yellow in the flame. That is normally caused by the mixing control on the gas feed tube being too closed. Trace the tube from the burner .....back toward the gas feed line....until you find the slip ring that controls the amount of oxygen that is mixed with the gas. Open is a small amount and light it. You should see a bit more blue color. If that does not work, continue to vary the adjustment until the flame burns correctly. The pilot should never blow out unless the outside air feed is too large. You can try blocking it a small amount to see if the smaller amount of outside air corrects the problem.
Look at the left burner, pipe,air hole adjustment,etc because it is operating good.
You will see a difference to it compared to the on the right.
The right pipe, air hole, or the length the pipe that are iserted in the gas control valve is different from the left.
The yellow flame indicates that not enough air is getting to the flame getting to the right flame ignition point.
The left flame is nice and blue...normal, the right is yellow indicating that not enough air is getting to the flame ignition point...look to see if the air hole adjustment is different than the one on the left...there is something open more or less, improperly adjusted.
Once you have it adjusted properly the right flame will burn bright blue just as it does on the left.

Your question was rather confusing, but the generic answer for smoking any type of meat. poultry or fish, is 225 - 250 degrees F. Any hotter, you've gone from smoking to grilling. Smoking any type of food is "a low & slow process."
The adjustment for maintaining a certain temperature with a smoker is by opening or closing the air intake damper(s) Closing the damper(s) slows the intake air flow to the fuel and it burns slower and cooler. Opening the dampers does the opposite.
The difference between an orange flame and blue flame is the amount of air in the combustion process. SO if the flame is orange it is being starved of oxygen. The gas burns dirty and soot is generated.
Sometimes with an older heater the exhaust venturie becomes plugged and carbon monoxide is released into your home- in this case your heater would make a woof or poping sound when starting up or shutting off. This is a dangerous unsafe situation and professional help is needed.
What you can do is try to make adjustment yourself, if your confident the other situation does not exist. Your water heater should have a little deflector shield on the gas line between valve and burner (typically immediatly after the orfice). Sometimes these will have to be slide front or backwards or twisted. The adjustment of deflector shield must be opened more to make the blue hotter flame to mak eyour heater operate at peak efficiency.
In a gas dryer, heat is provided by a gas heater that is controlled by an air shutter. The gas heater is generally the source of no-heat or drying problems. You can often correct such problems by adjusting the air shutter on the gas burner, which is located along the bottom of the dryer.
To adjust the shutter, take out the screws and remove the panel that covers the gas flame. Turn on the dryer so the flame is burning. If the flame has a deep blue color and you hear air whistling around the burner, the air/gas mixture is receiving too much air. If the flame has a yellow tip, the mixture is not receiving enough air. Turn the thumbscrew or loosen the two screws slightly to increase or decrease the flow of air to the burner. Keep turning until the flame is a light blue color, without any yellow, and the whistling stops.
propane is higher pressure than natural gas, there should be some orifices on the stove for the top burners, some have them near the top in a metal clip, some have them in a lower location, usually you can see them from the back of the stove. the oven and broiler may only need "tightened down", and the air blend will probably need adjusting for "flame color", you don't want yellow flame tips, good luck!
if you remove the knobs from the unit nad look closely doen the shaft of the protruding valve stem you should be able to see a slot for a regular screwdriver to fit down, its gonna have to be long adn thin but that is the flame adjustment screw,
put the flame down to low and use a pair of pliers to hold the valve stem from turning as you try to adjust the screw, turn it very slowly you seel an adjustment happen (dont really know if its counter clockwise or clockwise, but youll figure it out playin gwith it for a bit, just remember to hold the shaft from turnig, and although your turninf the valve down to simmer it does not afffect the high setting
