using a fuel line for a lid seal?

    Hi everyone, new guy here.

    I could have sworn I read a post somewhere, maybe not here, where somebody used something similar to a fuel line (fuel hose) slit lengthwise, then used it to line the top rim of the EBC body.  Unfortunately, I can't find it now, even after poring though my browsing history.

    Does that ring a bell to anyone?  Seems like a neat idea, if the hose can withstand the temps.  It would only need to withstand heat up to smoking temps, say 275, because it could easily be removed when using the ECB to grill.

    I live in Japan, and a lot of the products people recommend aren't available here, so I have to make do with what I can find.

    EDIT: Come to think of it, fuel line insulator tubing is probably what I'm thinking of, not the fuel line itself.

    Hey thinblueduke

    I don't recall seeing that on this forum. Anything on the internet we can look at that you are thinking of buying? 

    I thought about using something like a garden hose, slit lengthwise. I figured for sure it would melt and probably give off some really nasty fumes.

    I Don't think that would work. It is basically the same material as is used in auto door seals. In an ECB if your airflow is too high or you get a flareup in your pan or too much charcoal and you could hit 350-375 in no time and then you'd have a mess.
