You're probably wondering why the second floor to hold the burner, why not just mount the burner on the bottom and save some time. Well, I use the space below the burner to house the hose and regulator. And I don't want the hose to be inside the smoker, so I run 1/4" copper tubing below the burner floor and do my conversion to the hose there. You will need these fitting, which just about any good hardware store can help you with, and then you will also need a short chunk of 1/4" copper tubing.

If someone yanks on the hose it won't go ripping out the soft copper tubing and bending it all to pieces.

The needle valve was $12.00, and it is also needed to regulate the flame and consequently the heat.
