View Full Version : Gasket seal placement

I know crap about fireplaces so I figure someone has done this and may have experience.

I need to seal up the leaky firebox and cook chamber door on my queerdera.

So, what surface do you cement the braid to? The inside of the door itself or the mating surface on the boxes? I was thinking (let it go, I know), that on the doors would make more sense because that surface doesn't get as hot, but the trade off would be a durability or holding issue (with the constant movement of the door).

The last thing I wasnt is to get used to a non-leaky cooker and then have something fall off in the middle of a comp.:mad:

So, who's done it?
