    I have started a new build and cut the first door out. Now that I have put my flange around and added hinges when I open the door the top horizontal flange hits making it hard to open. Is this a flaw in my hinges or hinge placement. Thanks ps a little aboit the smoker, two fireboxes and a divider in the cooking chamber making two smokers in one. Dif temps can be run at t be same time

    Hinge placement.......  The hinge  pin needs to be outside the sealing flange.....    Dave
