Chubby g2 latch issues

Postby Jbear1919 » Mon May 12, 2014 9:42 pm

My new chubby g2 has issues with latches! Both doors from firebox and cook chamber don't shut tightly and if you don't watch it latch to fire box will randomly pop open the door! Most backwoods I have been around you have to slam them to shut, not mine I can pull on top of the door not even lath and it will open! Any idea who I need to contact about it, or have there been anyone else experiencing these issues

This might have been a quality escape from the factory or your seals have compressed quite a bit since you got your smoker. Unless Mike has changed vendors on the latches they are all adjustable. Look on smoker side of the assembly, not the handle that is on the door. There is one screw on the side of the striker that is in a horizontal position, it's the slotted screw so it takes a common screwdriver or as we southern folks call, a flat blade screwdriver. Loosen this screw and slide the striker portion of the latch in a little ways. This will make the door latch farther closed than it was. Don't forget to tighten the screw after each adjustment.
