Lookin forward to a test run!
I have been giving that some thought. The drum seals onto the firebox using the original top seal rim. I took out the silicone seal because I thought it might not survive the heat. I don't think at smoking temps the silicone seal will get that hot, so it might work. Will need to evaluate it.
I have also been thinking about using a length of rope in place of the silicone seal. The rope will seal the air leaks and depending on which type of rope I use it will have a much higher burn temp, so it might work out pretty well.
