Can your products be converted to Natural Gas and do you sell a conversion kit?
Our units CAN be converted to Natural Gas however, our units are tested and designed to operate on LP gas and our company does not do any testing with Natural Gas, therefore we do not sell a Natural Gas Conversion Kit. We recommend that you contact your local Natural Gas Company and a plumber to perform your conversion for you.
My smoker is running too hot, how can I reduce my temperature to below 250 degrees?
Our smokers are designed to operate between 200-350 degrees. If you are in this range your smoker is functioning as it should. These temperatures will vary for each smoking session as the ambient temperature outside at that time and the amount of food in your cabinet will vary for each use.
Having trouble getting smoke from the wood chips when I use my electric smoker, what should I do?
We recommend that you preheat your smoker on HIGH with your wood chips placed as close to or directly above the heating element with no water or food. Once you start to receive smoke adjust your temperature to the desired cooking setting and add your food and water.

Do you have a cookbook?
My unit keeps producing black soot and getting on my food, why and how can I fix it?
If you are experiencing this issue you may notice that you have a large yellow flame from your burner, if you see this then your burner may not be getting enough air. Your flame should be 80% blue and 20% yellow. To adjust the air flow turn the small metal cap located at the end of your burner tube that is located directly behind your control panel.
I light my unit and after a few minutes it goes out, why? Or my flame won’t adjust from high to low?
Our regulators have a pressure safety built into them and when the unit experiences this issue it usually means the safety has been triggered and It has kicked your unit into low flow. To reset your safety, turn the unit OFF and detach your tank from your unit and allow it to sit detached for 5 full minutes. After 5 minutes reattach your unit to the tank but do NOT turn the valve on your tank on full, only turn it a quarter to halfway on and then light your smoker. After your unit is lit you may increase the gas on your tank to full ON.
What are your covers made out of?
Our grill covers are black canvas with a PVC lining and the smoker covers are black vinyl with a cold backing, a form of pressed cotton. Our covers are not sold with a warranty due to exposure to outside weather conditions that vary across the United States, the covers will show wear differently. You can shop for covers in our online store.
