WSM 57cm Door, Latch and Gasket
For years users have reported their standard WSM door to not be optimal, when it comes to fit and style. But the guys at Cajun Bandit in the US have designed this thick stainless steel door to overcome this. It not only provides a stylish clean look to your Weber, but it also improves heat retention, making temperatures more manageable during cooks.
No drilling or cutting is needed, we also ship it with a specially designed hinge that pulls the door tight to the smoker, not like the stock factory version.
This kit is often asked for when purchasing the door upgrade, so we've created a bundle with it all in ready to go.
This high-temperature roll of gasket tape ensures you get a tight seal between the lid and main body, along with the seal between the door and the body, this way you can get a more stable temperature reading within the smoker when adjusting the stock vents.
Instructions are all included for this self-stick tape, but we do recommend when buying with the hinge you fit the hinge first.
1 roll is 15ft and will do a 57cm WSM with some left over.
The doors may need additional bending depending on your smoker model and the condition of its cylinder. This can be done by placing the door on its side and applying pressure.
If the door fit is not perfect, you may risk chipping your smoker paint, this is not covered by ProSmoke and may void your warranty.
Do not force the door on the first fitment.
The product arrived fairly quickly, however due to a mishap the gasket what I ordered wasn't in the box so was sent separately. The product itself is very sturdy and no longer have any leaks to my door of my WSM. I would highly recommend.
After messing about with a WSM a few times before taking the plunge and buying one myself, I was quite surprised given how good Weber are at the amount of smoke leaking from their standard door. It's also pretty flimsy and bends if you so much as look at it sideways. This door is the opposite. Precision cut, thick, basically impossible to bend unless you do something catastrophic. Great stuff.
The kit with the latch and gasket is absolutely worth it. The latch is fully adjustable so you can carefully calibrate how much pressure the door puts on the body of the WSM (be careful, if you over tighten it you could easily end up cracking the ceramic coating on the WSM itself). The gasket is easy to apply and does it's job brilliantly - no smoke leakage if you don't leave any gaps.
All in all an excellent package.
Also worth mentioning that ProSmoke themselves are an absolute pleasure to deal with. Prompt service, excellent communications. I'll be ordering stuff from them for years to come.
I am amazed at how much better this door is vs. the Weber. The gasket is easy to install and works well. After firing up my WSM I didn't see ANY smoke escaping from the door, it was great.
