If I seal my BSKD with a high temp sealant will I have trouble with vapors of the sealant getting into my food?

I figure that I will run it first and cure it but will it be safe after that?

It's my understanding that its not supposed to give off a toxic smoke in a fire. However, I think that is just for breathing. Don't think I would want it on my food.

The BSKD door to the smoke chamber does not have a tight seal. I would like to seal this up so that I can control the temp better. How would you suggest that I seal up the door on that chamber and really for that matter the firebox?

I've used pieces of real firehose for sealing stuff around hot areas in marine applications, near huge diesels, etc.

I didn't seal mine. I think the loose design kind of helps the draft. Remember this is a wood/charcoal smoker and you need the airflow. Adjust your temp with the air intake.
