Applied a length of Rutland rope stove gasket between the f/box and cook tube, used high temp Permatex silicone to make a gasket on the cook tube door-it was actually pretty tight!

Extended the exhaust vent with a piece of flashing down to the cook grate level.

12"x12" perf steel charcoal basket

4 wheel drive!

Sold it for $125
How wide and long is the firebox baffle you made? Was it worth the effort?
