    I've heard of using this stuff to seal the gaps on smokers and it's been suggested that it's ok to use the Ultra Copper on the smoker box as the temps don't get excessively high. Here's some info that was provided by Permatex on that subject, 

    ..."Permatex has a High Temp. RED RTV Silicone Gasket Maker and is safe to use around food products .It is certified NSF/ANSI STANDARD 51 Food Equipment Materials ...( indirectly around food )Temp. max. is 600 F continuous and 650 F intermittently ... The Ultra Copper is not NSF..."

    Thought this might be useful.

  2. Good information

  3. Thanks for the info. I just picked up 2 tubes today for sealing the CC on my NTM offset. Think I'm gonna try the "SaranWrap" method I read about in a previous post.

    So you're going to use the "red" sruff?  Let me know how it turns out.  I was thinking along the same lines.
  5. Will do.

    I'm sorta waiting for a break in the everyday rain we've been getting. I've also gotta come up with an easy "no weld" way to help lift the CC door. It's only around 30" long, but it's made of 1/2" x 16" pipe like the rest of the pit and could use a little help. I'm even thinking about rigging up some kind of chain and pulley system, maybe using bicycle parts, along with drilling 4 holes for thermocouple placement......kinda give it a "steampunk" vibe.....LOL

    That does sound rather cool.  Good luck.
