sealant question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
so i used the stove adhesive to attach my fire rope last weekend and by morning it had just fallen off. i went to the hardware store and found both high heat mortar and fire stop silicone. does anyone know which i should use?? both are made by DAP. the fire stop says not to use on stoves or fireplace that recieve constant high heat. well my chargriller is only a smoker, i grill on a weber kettle so the temps are never more than 300* tops but consistantly 225* to 250*. if anyone has any ideas please let me know i am smoking some ribs tomorroe afternoon and need to get this done by then... thanks guys

yep, that adhesive always breaks loose. Used it on mine, against my better judgement.. then used high heat rtv silicon from menards... works great.. good luck.

oops, guess i did not really answer your question...use the silicone... the morter wont have as much flex, similar to the cement that comes with the rope.

Hey Grindstaff3, I used a red, high temperature silicone gasket sealer, I bought at Wally's about $3-$4 for use on my MES 40 and worked out great. Thanks to a member from the SMF, 2 months later and no problemPDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Yep definitely red high temp rtv. Stuck some rope to the back of mien months ago and is still holding good. Sets up fairly quickly too.

I use Rutland 500º High Heat silicone sealant caulking for smokers, works great. First fridge smoker I made, I used it to attach fireplace gasket rope around the door of the fridge and it was still holding well after 5 years when I sold the smoker.
