Good Day!!

is there a way to adjust the door on the series 4 vertical smoker? Mine seems to be a bit off kilter. Also has anyone replace the gasket? The one installed seems a but small but again it could be the door being off a bit. This is a brand new smoker.

I have attached a pic that shows the right side lower than the left at the top. I have a support case, but as of yet no answer.

Thanks!

Mine is the same way but not quite as off as that. It hasn't been an issue for me so I left it alone. I get a good seal on the door when the latch is closed and have never had any problems.

Yeah, it isn't bad just a little smoke leakage.

Was able to get it adjusted. To raise the right corner up I put a shim under the body-side lower hinge. Don't laugh at the shim, LOL Might try to find a better one or just paint this one with high temp paint and call it a day. The first pic attached is before.

Nice going! I might have to try this because mine does the same thing. I think I have one of those handy wrenches somewhere! As I said before, mine isn't that bad but it is something I noticed every time I cook.

Did you just loosen the screws and slide it underneath?

Yeah what concerned me more than anything was heat loss.. If you see smoke leaking then heat is too. The wrench is one of those you get with furniture and is ~1/8" thick.

Have you used a heat/welding blanket on the cabinet? Doesn't seem like there is much insulation in the walls. Probably not needed just curious.

Never needed a blanket on my vertical Copperhead or my Pit Boss grill... But this is Florida and while it does get chilly in Jan I have never needed anything to keep heat in.
