Is High teperature silicone safe to seal holes inside the smoke chamber? If so what kind and where to find it? Thanks for any info.

Yes you can find hightemp food grade silicone I picked some up localy for my smoke shack. I will have to check and see the brand name but they have it online.

Restaurant supply stores will also carry it, just saw some yesterday in one.

The regular kitchen and bath caulk I use has a temp rating of around 600 deg. IIRC. If I exceed those temps I've got bigger concerns than my caulking. I use Dap or GE brand.

I would try to find one that specifically says "food grade". The standard bath/kitchen stuff might have some nasty off gasing as it heats. Probably not enough to harm you, but why take the chance.

Been using Rutland 500ยบ RTV High Heat silicone sealant on smokers for many years.

That is where I found my high temp food grade stuff. I called every hardware store and they had no clue what I was talking about. I finally called a restaurant supply place and they didn't have it but they told me where they buy it in town. Some place I had never hear of before. They should either have some or know where to get some.

This works for me. Don't think I'm taking a chance.
