I have a SM008 that I bought about 8 months ago from and have used about 10 times. I've loved it, but the last time I used it I've noticed a problem. The paint/powdercoat on the inner edge of the top of the door (where the smoke is known to leak out)has wrinkled and contracted so that the metal is exposed. The area is about 1.5" x .25"- don't know if this happened from the hot smoke leaking out from the door or what.
The exposed metal hasn't started rusting because its covered in smoke residue, but I expect that it will as some point. The other problem is that know I know that the door will never create that good seal we want.
Has anybody had this issue before and have deal with cookshack about it?
