Im from central Il and have always been a charcoal only cooker. Ive used a weber standard for years, but have wanted to expand my variety. I just bought a Oklahoma joe highlander from lowes. Over the weekend I ran through three chimneys; burning that "new" off it. Today I put peanut oil all over the inside of it and smoked some boneless chix thighs. Ive never grilled on these offset smokers, but am wanting to get into this. I will be shortly buying some gasket to put around the edges where the doors close. I will be getting some gasket to seal off where the fire box is put together and where it is attached to the barrel. These areas allow too much air in and the fire wont die when its closed off. Anyone have good ideas of what gasket to use on the firebox? Eventually ill have it welded together, but for now I need a quick fix.

Welcome to SMF and congrats on the new smoker!  Someone will be along shortly to help with the firebox gasket question.  If not here, just post your question in the Charcoal Smokers section.


Have fun with the new toy!

Thanks. I went out and bought a fireplace gasket today, but will have to put it on tomorrow. I will be smoking a 18lb turkey saturday, so look out for that.
