I'm on the verge of doing something similar. Father in law stumbled across a Brinkman @ a garage sale and gave it to me to tinker with. Did you use fiberglass rope your seal? If so, how did you get it to stick? I also read somewhere else that it tends to "shed" leaving threads on the food. Let me know how it goes. thanks!
