pit barrel lid doesn't fit tightly

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I got my new pit barrel and was expecting the lid to fight tightly like my friend's first gen pit barrel.  I was under the impression that the only place that was designed to release air/smoke at the top was through the rebar holes. I lose a little bit of smoke from the lid opening because the lid doesn't sit perfectly flat on the barrel or fight tightly.  I also noticed a little bit of smoke escaping from one of the handle mount holes as well.

 

As long as my cooker stays at a good temperature (and doesn't get too hot) do you think this is ok?  Or should it fight tightly and truly only release smoke from the rebar holes?

 

Thanks,

Stinky

It probably would be fine but since its new and its bothering you, it can't hurt to give Noah at PBC a call.  Their customer service is great.  In some cases,  Noah, the owner will call you back himself.
