Max, [p]I took your advice and went the low tech way, and that worked great for the large. The small, however, was another story. [p]But since I'd been talking about realigning the bands anyway, I took this opportunity to remove the lid, redo the gasket, and replace with good even pressure on top and now the seal is rock solid. Can't wait to knock out a bunch of cooking this weekend. [p]Thanks for the tips. Now let's see those trophies!!![p]WAR EAGLE!!!
