Are you hoping the latch will pull out the warp in the door and seal it?

Yes kinda what I'm looking for.
I can deal with the war page but to have them seal to hold the heat and smoke is most important

I thought about trying to find some J latches that are used on pop up campers but have had no luck locating any.
I'm gonna go to Tractor Supply and Orsheilins this afternoon see what I can find on the cheap

Update I found some latches for small hand carry toolboxes (the kind that are pop riveted on) that will work beautifully on this lil dude and easy to use and attach.
I think these will work perfectly. Image

I think it will. I'm gonna try to figure out the warped door issue.
I got some door seal tape today as well. So now to dress it and start the seasoning process. 1st cook is gonna be a pork loin on one side and 3 baked potatoes on the other. If it will run good itll be plenty to feed 3-4 ppl. And my bigger smokers for larger groups of people.

Well folks I think its finished in the build department.
10:45 lit 1st fire. 24 briquettes and 4 pecan twigs.
11:00 --- 150*
Good looking smoke. The goal is 300* for as long as possible. ImageImageImage
I should've made the air inlet larger!! I'll fix that.
