I'm looking at a fix for this too. I believe you will need to buy some of the Big Green Egg gasket felt from a BGE dealer. You will then remove the stop screw and slide that vent out and cut a small strip of the felt and fasten it in there to close up that gap. You will want to do it on both ends and possibly around the top and bottom edges also.

Just finished up my butt cook. Starting with a small amout of charcoal let me keep the heat at 225-230 for as long as I wanted which was about 2 hours. I opened the vents some and had it up to 240 where I let it ride for 4 1/2 more hours til the butt was 200 internal. Temp stayed pretty well but I did adjust the vents (by small amounts) a couple times. The dome therm ran 10 degrees cooler than the grate for a while but after I got it up to 240 they read about the same.

I'd probably just make a new slide that sits flush out of some stock aluminum.

NO you shouldn't! Just let me know where it is so I can dispose of it properly.

Bingo, that's what I did except I used .035 stainless (aluminum would be much easier to work with. I also flattened out those stupid raised numbers.





Cant slide paper in from back side notice the bolt hole how much it is raised, going to fix that with a gasket.



Gasket template.



This happened from about 2-3 minutes with the lid opened and the bottom vent all the way closed.



Going to drill out those rivets and seal the top flange with this and possibly spot weld it back together.

I don't know if it can take the heat so I ran the bead of RTV around the outside of the top gasket with the hopes that the rope might shield the RTV. I did run the RTV around the inside of the ash pan gasket, reasoning that the metal flange might shield that bead. I'll know for sure tomorrow. I cooked pizzas tonight somewhere around 600F. The Maverick only goes up to 572F and when it maxed out the dome temp ran up another 25F.

I buzzed the corners off my square pizza stone with a belt sander and it rests on the fire ring with the cast iron grate removed. Thanks, JM for the tip about the high temps cooking the seasoning off your cast iron grate. Saved me from the extra work.

If the Permatex failed, I'll 'fess up tomorrow. Brian

PS- margherita then mushroom & garlic, 5 mins each. Tasty, tasty.

Follow up:
I used Permatex Ultra Black (rated for 500F) to seal my Akorn and was curious how it held up to last night's pizza cook at 600F. I inspected both RTV beads today and they're fine, no sign of any problems. I think it's fine for this application in the locations that I used it. Brian
