    Got a new Brinkman Veritical Smoker to use with my ECB.  I am using the wok tray for the charcoal / wood and pavers under it as support.  But my smokers has a lot of leaks, during thanksgiving had lots of smoke and heat escape on out the doors and the top of the smoker.  Any suggestions for sealing these drafts?

    You can try high temp silicone or rope gasket like they use in ovens.

     put a heavy bead of silicone between the smoker and the door.

    Put it on the smoker and cover w/ saran wrap. close the door and the silicone will mold to the shapes. once it has set .remove the saran wrap.
