    Hi great forum you guys have here. I have a quick question for you. I"ve been using  masterbuilt electric smoker for the last few years. I notcied the other day at Lowes that the new model has a latch on the door. I have always noticed that my door never really sealed that well but didnt think much of it. So the last time I tied the door closed to keep it really tight. So my question is this..does anybody here have the old model and if so do you strap the door closed tight or just let is stay closed by itself? Thanks in advanced.

    When I bought mine about four years ago, it had a latch on it from the place I bought it, but other models (e.g. BassPro) had the magnetic seal -- which forums had warned did not work too well.  Since then, they seem to have put latches on the newer models.

    I think that I saw latches on the parts list.  You could probably call customer service and get one -- either free or for a small charge.  I doubt that it would be all that hard to mount.
