Sealing a smoker

  1. How would you "seal" a smoker from letting too much smoke out?

    I was thinking about using that shiny tape that you use for ducts in your house?? Then painting them black with high temp paint from "Rustoleum", good for up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit? 
    Thoughts???

    Cheap and dirty is to run a bead of High Temp RTV Silicone Gasket around the opening, cover with plastic wrap and close the door. This will form the RTV to make a seal. Remove the plastic after it sets. The pretty fix is to figure what size gaps you have and install the proper thickness Fireplace/Oven door gasket...JJ
