FAQ Subject: Sealing a Brinkman Pro pit


On your advice, I sealed my Brinkman Pro. Not too hard, once I figured a couple of things out. Very little smoke leaks, and ZERO rain gets in. Just in time. It's raining hard here now.

I suppose you know this, but I found fiberglass gaskets and even a heat resistant (500*) silicon putty down at the woodstove store. Simple process.

Here is an item that might interest you. The silicon might work for the cooking chamber. The fire box gets hotter than 500°F. So, I put on my thinking cap and found myself at the automotive store. There was a tube of goop there for $1.99 called Victors Muffler Mender. Good to 1200°F!!!!!!!!!

I bought the tube, but I haven't used it yet. I'm not 100% sure it would be safe around food. Do you know anything about that? It would be very useful stuff for q-people. Cheap, heat resistant adhesive for various purposes. But, if it killed off the q-nation, not good.

Your book got here. Good stuff. An education in itself.

All best,

Hey, Chuck!


The muffler mender will cook out off the volatiles the first time that you fire it up. The wood stove store should have has some black goop that dries hard and can stand the heat. But it is cheap and the silicon stuff is, I am sure, more expensive.

Have fun,

The Barbecue Store
