I was about to go out and get a pair of clamp latches today but I really wasn't too excited about leaving holes in the door and body of the smoker. I decided to have a closer look at the stock latches. I noticed that the bottom latch and the top latch adjustment screws were not drilled in the same location. I swapped them around and now the door shuts much tighter than before. The door hinges must be off just a tiny bit because looking at the white gaskets this corner is the only place that leaks. All the other gaskets are still perfectly white.
Now I don't have to spray the gaskets with Pam every other cook to keep them from leaking. It was a small leak in the upper corner of the door where the latch is located. It was really getting annoying.
