In principle, I would think you'd do better with the 0-5 PSI adjustable regulator. I'm not writing from experience though. KIBOW 0~5PSIG High Pressure Adjustable Propane Regulator with 4FT Hose-Type 1(QCC 1) Connection-CSA Certified. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072LRCQD8/?tag=pmak-20

Whatever nonstandard regulator you use, I would recommend plumbing in a pressure gauge. The small gauge I attached at the oven, in my first post on this thread, is WIKA 9851682, available on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002089PIS/?tag=pmak-20) but cheaper on ebay.

Bad advice recommending someone to put a high pressure reg on a low pressure system - especially since he is using it indoors, sigh

I'm going to switch out propane tank first to see what that does? If not then I will mess with the regulator. I'm almost certain though it's probably my propane tank I just never noticed because I've never had to use it in this application


I would also just try a factory regulator first

I agree. I don't recommend it. I shared my experience with a slight (36%) increase in pressure over stock. I used an expensive and outrageous regulator to do it. The question of how to do it cheaper inevitably comes up. Stay safe, everyone!

Some normal 2 stage low pressure reg are adjustable but only by 1 or 2 inches of water column...

On your posts I see a /?tag=pmak-20 (see below) are those amazon affiliate link markers? Are you somehow affiliated with The Propane Marketers Association of Kansas (PMAK). I think clicking on one of those links and buying items will generate income for whoever has the affiliate name pmak on amazon. Wondering how they got into you links? Just FYI....

I'm using the line on the knob as the reference point.

It's not just my links that do that. I wondered about it too. The forum software adds that parameter when the post author highlights the Amazon URL and clicks the button that turns it into a hyperlink. I didn't discover a way to undo that change. If that's an affiliate marker, it's not mine.

Maybe it is Steve generating some extra cash to by more cheese for his pizza - if that is the case I would think he should disclose it to users here... Maybe pmak is short for pizza maker -- if not disclosed it is an Amazon violation :-(

2 hours to get the ardore up to temp and then only getting a 2 minute bake time? Certainly not my experience (not saying it wasn't yours). I had 60 second bakes, and I fired my pizzas after only 25 minutes of preheating tops.... And it was 23F outside... Of course there is a difference between surface temp and the stone being saturated with heat.

Fired up my Ardore for the first time today.  I hit 850/ 900 deck temp in around 30 min with the supplied regulator. Hopefully I'll have time to bake some pies this week.

I'm doing a test firing of my new little oven to season the floor. So far, it seems that the flame isn't nearly as intense as my Blackstone with the v1 regulator valve,  Is this par for the course, or do I need to get another propane cylinder?

What do the temps say?  I don't think you can go by looks.  Your flame looks more intense than mine (could just be photo or my lighting conditions) and mine appears to heat just fine.

Jonas......this oven doesn't have the "roar" of the Blackstone. I wondered the same thing the first time I lit mine. Your flame looks normal and I think you're fine....
