Replacing Smoker Seal
ITEMS YOU WILL NEED
- New seal
- A drill with a 1/8 in drill bit
- Sheet metal screws OR aluminum head rivets with rivet gun
Use your drill to drill out all the existing rivets
Remove the old seal and discard
One of your corners will have 3 holes at a 90-degree angle instead of two. This is where we recommend you start. Attach your seal with your screw or rivet beginning at the second from the corner hole (diagram A). Leave enough seal to reach the corner hole as this is where you will also end (diagram B).
Work away from your starting corner attaching seal using the existing holes.
Once you are back to your starting corner, overlap the overhanging piece of seal from the first rivet with the other end of the seal. For this hole you will attach both pieces of seal using one rivet or screw going through both pieces. (Diagram C)
Trim the excess seal off at the starting corner.
