New C/L find Bandera clone !!
2 Attachment(s)
I have been scouting C/L for a bandera type Vertical Offset for a few months. Yesterday this popped up for $100. I offered $60. and it was a done deal.It is a fully welded unit bought from Academy. Lit it up tonight with half chimney of mesquite lump and the chicken was great. I will be doing the typical mods of fire brick and charcoal basket but i noticed the door is leaky . My big question is what is the best way to make a gasket for the door?

This is a post that advised me about sealing the door from one of knowledgeable people here.

Thanks for the advise on sealing up the door. I will go to work on it tomorrow.
So Far for the money I'm pleased.......

I had the exact smoker... Sold it on CL for $200 in a few days. U got a good price.

I used tin foil around the doors. Worked great.

Nothing like a night-time smoke on a chilly evening in Texas.
Feeding it hickory sticks and mesquite lump.
