Sure. I had to ease mine in about 1/2 inch on one end (the other end was fine). With the top edge held firmly in place (hinge welded in) I put a 2x4 about a foot longer than the door opening at about the mid-point, wrapped a chain around the pit & door and eased it in with a load binder and rachet load strap. Wound up not having to torch it, but I'm sure that would work also.
