Solution #1 is the answer -- replace the regulator. The problem is that the regulator is stuck closed. You can either replace it, or pop the little metal cap on the top off and adjust it. (Use a large philips screwdriver). Do a full turn counter-clockwise, and then 3/4 of a turn clockwise.

I have the same problem with my Great outdoors smoky mountain series cabnet style smoker that I've had for 12 years. I changed the regulator today and it didn't do anything. So I'm now thinking, after much research, that the problem is the valve. The High, Medium, Low valve. On some other brands of smokers you can buy a replacement spring kit for the same style valve so I'm thinking it could also be the problem on the smoky mountain. Since Great outdoors is no longer in business I cannot find a kit to fix it and am now thinking of bypassing the valve and just using an adjustable valve regulator.

I use three of them and am about to purchase another. All of them have had this same issue. But the good news is that I have been able to fix all of them easily. Carefully remove the burner assembly and you will come to the valve. Carefully clean the jet and the jet hood (don't know technical term) with a very fine wire or pin. Every time mine have had this problem, this solution has worked and it took about 30 minutes to take apart, clean, and re-assemble. Good luck.

Our fix turned out to be a new regulator, even though a test showed that the original was working, It evidently wasn't allowing enough gas through once it reached a certain temp... The new regulator is a much better one.. really love the smoker....!!

I bought a flat steel panel with openings and use charcoal in addition to the gas to raise the temperature. Upside it adds flavor. The downside it's difficult to maintain a constant temperature.

Need a owners manual for the 34" propane smoker great outdoors smokey mountain smoker


Hello,

The truth is that the user manual/instruction for your propane smoker is not available anywhere online. The manufacturers of this unit did not make it available. I went further searching and couldn't find any.

I would suggest you contact the manufacturer of this unit via phone or e-mail and request for the instruction/user manual from them. They might give it to you or direct you to a dealer where you can get the instruction/user manual.

This is the best you can do to get the instruction/user manual you are requesting for. Go to the propane smoker's website, check "Contact Us" and you would see their e-mail and phone number.

Below are some instructions that may help you with your propane smoker;

Set Up the Tank

The first thing to do in using your propane smoker is to connect the propane tank to the smoker. Open its valve by turning it in a clockwise direction. Next, you need to locate the wood chip box. Fill the box with any wood that you prefer, like hickory, mesquite or oak.

The wood chips when lit produce a smoky flavor that is absorbed by the food in the propane smoker. Each type of wood produces its own distinct flavor. Remember to soak the wood chips for at least an hour before using them so that they do not burn quickly. Soaking the wood chips also helps to create more smoke inside the propane smoker.

Fill the Water Box

After filling the wood chip box, you need to fill up the water box of the propane smoker. It is usually located right above the wood chip box. You can fill the water box with water or with sand. You can leave it empty, but it is best filled with water because the evaporation during the cooking process keeps the food from getting dry and tough.

When cooking with a propane smoker, moisture is important. Keep adding water when the level in the box is low. To add more flavor to your food, you can also add spices and seasonings to the water.

Cooking Time

The propane smoker is almost ready. All that is left to do is turn on the smoker and adjust the temperature. Most models have a rotary dial that controls the level of temperature in the smoker. The temperature depends on the type of food that will be cooked.

You should use a higher temperature for thick slices of meat and a lower temperature for thin slices of meat or for vegetables. Once you see smoke coming out of the smoker, it is time to put in your meat or vegetables. Cooking time depends on the kind of food being cooked and the thickness of the meat being smoked.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

I just purchased a brand new tank of propane and i still have the same problem that the propane burns out of all 4 burners but at a really low flame even on high. I can not get the grill to heat up...


Turn the tank off. Disconnect the grill hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the LP tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY until it's fully open. Now, light each burner one at a time and turn it up to the highest setting. If that didn't solve the problem, repeat the previously listed steps.

If after the second attempt the burners still only maintain a low flame, you will need to replace the grill hose/regulator.

Hope this solved your problem and Happy Grilling!

I have a Great Outdoor smoker that won't get hot.


I had the same problem with mine. I took the burner assembly at the knob apart and cleaned it and that worked for me. The grease from the meat dripped down on the gas orifice and hardened reduced the amount of gas being jetted to the burner. Hope this helps
