Adding a 3/8in gasket on a Master Forge smoker - questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Based on what I've read from other users here I bought myself a 3/8" gasket and high-temp glue.  In placing the gasket around the edge as a test (without glue), I'm very worried that the door will not close and latch completely.  Am I missing something, such as the gasket will compress more than what I'm seeing?  Or is there something else I should be doing when placing/gluing the gasket around the edge?

 

Thanks!

it sounds to me like you may need a thinner gasket.

Happy smoken.

Here is a link to some mods I did to mine and pics if the gasket I used.

I think the door latches on the unit may be adjustable, if not, you could always take a drill and oblong them a little to accommodate the gasket. You may want to also check m they have all different sizes.

Thanks David - I remember reading your post earlier.  Home Depot online didn't have anything smaller than 3/8" as I recall and their self adhesive was 1/2".  As a number of posts I read showed Master Forge owners using 3/8", I thought I should be safe getting it...

 

I am considering widening the notch on the side where the handle locks to accommodate if it doesn't fit. :-)

I never measured mine but I think it may be less than a 1/4 inch. I got it at a fireplace store.
