Just put my grill together and fired it up S model from HomeDepot. I noticed smoke coming out of the side where the lid meets the lower portion of the grill. There is actually a 1/8" by 12" gap where i can see through to the other side of the grill. Even with the bottom and top vents closed, the grill only dropped from 350 to 324 in 2 hours.
Has anyone experienced something like this? Is there something I can do?
I've attached a picture which doesn't do the size of the gap justice.
