What you got water getting in? BTW letting the rain hit the top dome is a good way to keep temps down if ya need to.

In Colorado we just went from rain to snow to....hey, around here, you can ski and golf in the same day this time of year.

As for sealing the smoker, I have used a heat resistent blanket out here when things get really cold and usually can get by just using sand to keep temps up. I will say sand is very consistent, much more so than water for what it's worth.
