Kettle Grill Gasket Kit
No More Leaky Kettles!
This bag includes two sections of high temperature gasket material to reduce any potential of smoke leaking from between the lid and the bowl. Simply remove the backing material and apply each section to the lip on the lid so that it will come in contact with the top portion of the bowl. Make sure the lip is clean and press firmly to assure good adhesion. After applying the first piece, complete the full circle using the second piece.
This will fit all 22" round kettle grills, but it was made for our Slow 'N Sear® Kettle Grill.

Going off some videos I watched I was mistaken that this came with the grill. I noticed when I got my grill that it did not and checked the product info which plainly states that the gasket is not included (my bad). My cook that weekend went well, but I noticed with wind gusts my temperature would spike and it was hard to maintain. I ordered the gasket and have had multiple cooks since and the temps are much easier to control. A must have for your SNS or other kettle.
When I installed the gasket, tightly on the inner lip of the SnS Kettle Grill's lid, it didn't quite fit & lock into place on the grill's rim. It wasn't wobbly, just not "on". During the grill's first use, I guess the heat seared the rim into the gasket like a lid for a bell jar after canning preserves. So now I've got a tight seal.
I was a binder clip guy for awhile, but I'm glad I pulled the trigger on the gasket. After cleaning the lid and installing per the instructions, it eliminated the vast majority of the leaks I was experiencing with my kettle. I did need to cut mine to fit, but I'm not sure if that was due to me stretching the gasket more than needed. TL:DR - buy it.
No air leaks around the lid with this gasket kit
Ordered this kit when I bought my new SNS kettle as I knew I would be using it a LOT for smoking meat and wanted my SNS to be very efficient. I was not surprised!!! It works GREAT!!!
