  1. hello folks, newbie here. I'm making a smoker out of a big stainless power box. I need some gasket material 1 inch wide and 1/4 inch thick that will stand up to 300 degrees of heat. Anybody know where I can find some?

    Use wood stove door gasket materiel.  Its like a fiberglass rope glue it place with high temp silicone. Lay smoker on its back and glue in place.

    X2 on the roll call.  We would like to give you a big and proper welcome!

    Also, with the search tool, you will find info with the stove gaskets and high temp sealers.

    When you get to roll call, post up a pic of your smoker.  We have lots of fabricators here who can give you some expert opinions.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Stove rope is the way to go. I found it was not available at the big box hardware stores in the length I needed. They only had kits with 5'-7' lengths included, but you might find more on a roll at a fireplace store in your area.

    I found the length I needed on ebay for a decent price.

    I just used two pieces of the rope gasket. Butt them together and it will be fine. My seam is about knee high on both sides and not a drop of smoke comes out.
