    I am looking for some input on sealing the firebox door and cooking
    chamber door.
    I am using the nomex lavalock gasket.
    I have read some people recommend putting it on the door
    and not the mating surface.
    I am in the process of modding another OK Joes
    on the first one I put the gasket on the mating surface because the
    doors are not mounted 100% sqare and cannot be adjusted.

    I am still very new to smoking and any input is greatly appreciated.

    I can't help you on gasket installation, but if you will go up top and hit the search bar, you should find lots of information.

    Looks like it. This group has not been very active at all for some reason.

    Use high temp silicone- the one rated for 1000°F- about $17-18 a tube at Aubuchon's.

    You should mount on the door, it will be less likely to get damaged when adding coals to the fire.

    Sorry about the late reply, I don't come here very much lately but will try to do better.
