[quote="RichP":11eh2gar]I cut the hose and regulator off the burner and chuck it in the garbage. The regulator that comes with a turkey fryer is a 5# regulator, and it is way too high for what we are doing here. It may be fine if you want to use it and know that you are the ONLY person that will ever use the smoker. But let someone else use it that doesn't know any better and there is going to be a fire. They just throw out too much flame. Ok, so you cut the hose off, and now you just have this little barb fitting sticking out of the burner. I had one of these little fittings brazed on the barbed fitting. It is 1/8 x 1/4, both ends female thread. Sorry, I don't know what they are called. The 1/8" fitting butts up to the barb end on the burner pretty good, and any guy with a torch can braze them together. We all have those kind of friends, right?

Here is what it will look like. [img]http://rp.smugmug.com/photos/94132241-M.jpg[/img][/quote:11eh2gar] That would be a Bell Reducer... Brass, I would imagine? Oh, and Great post!
