    Does anyone have any pics of sealing the rear of a CGSP? I've seen pictures if people sealing the front and sides, but not the rear. I like the way NCDODAVE sealed his with the rope in the chargriller sticky! I am planning on going this route. Any pics would be appreciated! thanks!

    I don't have any pictures (and won't because it looks hillbilly), but I just make a aluminum foil rope the lenth of the lid. Place it on the gap in the back when it's open. Closing the lid mashes the rope and creates the seal. Low tech, but effective.

    That does sound easy. does the foil stay there when opening and closing? How often do you replace it?

    You usually have to give it a poke or 2 right before you close the lid. Not sure how long it lasts, but suffice it to say, at least months.
