My offset has a small gap between the lid and the bottom allowing heat/smoke to escape. Any thoughts on how to reduce the loss?
How do you get a smoker air tight?

hello and welcome Cripplecreek from Slidell. I spent a couple of years in W. Monroe and have good friends from Schreveport.
A small crack isn't going to make a big difference. My Oklahoma Joe leaks a bit, but it doesn't affect the cooktime or quality of food.
There have been numerous recent threads on this, take a quick look at wood smokers and see it they are there. I'll check and try to post a link if I find them for you.
Take a look at the thread "An Invitation for S. Louisiana Gathering" in the events section. Hope you can make it.
