    I have an ECB and I hate it! Hate is a strong word...i find it frustrating!

    I want to make some mods to it like putting a gasket around the lid to seal it properly.

    Does anyone what type of gasket I should get? I have been looking online and I think I need a door seal or something like that.

    Also what other mods could I get/do and does anyone know where I should go in Houston (Texas) to buy the material?

    Many thanks.

    Ok, so I returned from Texas with lots of goodies and also a gasket to seal the lid so I can retain the heat and smoke. I also got a thermometer for the ECB so I can see what temp it is running.

    My question is where is the best place to place the thermometer? In the side of the lid next to the original one or near the top of the lid?

    I have seen photos of both.

    Dealers choice.....I used to run mine through a small drilled hole right about grate level to see what was going on there where the chow was.
