    Gasket kit for 18.5"

    I purchased the gasket kit for the lid and door and I am trying to clean the door and lid surround where I will place the RTV to adhere the gasket to. I have tried scrubbing the door and lid and used a multi surface cleaner (organic) to help loosen the grime there. I have this smoker for about a year and use it regularly. I want to make sure that the RTV and gasket does stick and not fall off in the future. Anyone out here use anything or have any other suggestions?

    Use a grind stone on a dermal to rough the surface up. A smooth shine surface isn't good for adhesive bonding. There isn't anything for it to adhere to.
