all you need to do is bend it slightly is its not round and thats it, i like that door on there the small amount of leakage is totally fine and will never harm anything

I bought this gasket kit and have had no problems...

Also got the Cajun Bandit SS Door. (Other than looks, can't really tell the difference in performance)

He's got a WSM and not interested in buying or building another smoker..... Jeez! Cajun bandit makes a good solid door that won't tweak out of shape that easily.

As mentioned, CB Stainless Steel Door, BBQGaskets gasket, and a compression latch and all your problems will go away...

I have the Cajun Bandit door with the factory latch and am perfectly happy with it. The CB door is solid. There is enough "seasoning" built up to prevent most air from escaping around the door. What little bit may escape really makes no difference to me.

After tonight, lets just say that I can't WAIT to get my Backwoods Smoker! Ill use the WSM for Ribs and chicken because this thing won't cook low and slow with all of these air leaks. Ill get the gaskets and the Cajun Bandit to go on it as wwell. Hopefully that will make a difference.

I sure hope you don't plan on getting much into that chubby...? Most people I know that have one use it for the rib cooked and do the rest on "other" pits.

I LOVE ME SOME BACKWOODS THOUGH!.....

In defense of on topic opposing views the OP mentions throwing the WSM away and or selling it.

Marty I enjoy and respect all your posts, just seeing this one a tad different����

I actually bought the gaskets and the door before I ever cooked on my WSM. Gasket around the top and the door. Will hold temps like nobody's business.




Now, I know what the real problem is. It's that new woman...errr...smoker you're eyeballing that's coming into your life. The old girl's shortcomings always become more aggravating when there's a new one on the horizon.
