So after my last mods to my ECB I still had temp problems but not as bad. The temp was no longer in the 300-325 but was in the 270 or so range regardless of how closed I had the bottom hole. So I started looking for air leaks and noticed a good 1/4" or better gap where the door is attached. At the time I simply tapped it on all four sides. This solved the problem I can now easily hold the temp in 200-220 range and higher if needed. Problem is that tape looks pretty crappy. So I was wondering if there was some sort of silicon that could handel the heat. Hopfully one that is clear and not white.
Looking around at HD I noticed a silicon made for fireblock (what ever that is....) but is didnt say what temps it was good for, though it did say that it would swell around heat and smoke to prevent leaks and hold heat in. Might this work? Or is there a better product I should be aware of?
Also on a side note I found a webber replacment grates for the smoke joe bbq that fits just right inside the fire bowl of the gourmet smoker. Not sure if it will fit the others.
As always I thank you all.
