    If you can easily slide a dollar bill out between the top and bottom I'd readjust. Check all the way around.

    I had a similar problem. Folks around here suggested putting a couple quarters at the front of the lid. So I loosened up the band on the top of my egg and placed a quarter at each of the places where the handle was attached. Tighted the band after pushing it up on the lid edge.... volia no smoke leak!
