Hey guys, Ive been browsing this forum for a few days and decided to finally buy a smoker. I bought the ECB from Home Depot. I know it is not that good but I wanted to give it a shot and if I enjoy it, I'm going to buy a better one. Anyway, I did most of the MODS from the homepage. I got the temp to 215 and it stayed there for about 45 minutes. I just got some more coal going and changed the pan. So I just curing it now. The smoker instructions say to let it stay at 215 for two hours, let it cool, then you are ready to cook. My question is: Is the lid supposed to be really loose? It barely fits on the smoker and definately is not a good seal.
