Cook chamber door

Postby Motoclay » Tue Sep 25, 2018 3:37 pm

How big of a deal is it that the cook chamber door leaks a little long the lower edge?? Is that an issue really? I mean I seem to cook ok with it....just curious

I've never cooked with one that had a sealed tight cook chamber, besides I always leave the door open anyway.

Minor leaks on the chamber door are normal. Too big and you suck a lot of cold air in once the chamber heats and starts a draft which causes some excessive fuel use. Mild to low leaks are normal.

Well I did have to prop the cook chamber door open a few times when the temps tried to "run away" but yeah, I did mean the burn box....
