    I cured my new smoker and noticed smoke coming out of the smoker around the seams. It wasnt gushing out, but very noticeable. Is this normal?
     
  2. rockiestring,

    smoke exiting around the door is normal. I've never had it leak out of the weld seams of mine. If you modify your exhaust and extend it into your smoker cavity you will notice it more, but it is well worth it.

    How far should I extend the stack into the chamber?
     
  4. Well, what I did was..

    take a 55 oz can of beans
    use the beans to make "Wicked Bake Beans" http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/vie...ghlight=wicked

    Then cut the can length wise

    Curl it to fit in the exhuast pipe stick in and wrap it with foil.

    Real simple, doesn't require anything special to build and works like a champ

    Rockie, your smoker is DEFECTIVE!!! Box it up and send it to ME! :P LOL

    Smoke leakage around the door is normal, remember you want the smoke to leave the unit (perferably up the stack). If your unit has a smoke damper in the exhaust stack make sure that it is fully open.
