Gap Between Lid & Barrel

What's in This Article?

Your grill's lid should sit flush on the barrel. A gap between the lid and the barrel that is less than 1/4 inch (0.63 cm) is normal, and there's no reason to worry. 

How to Fix a Lid Gap

If you see a gap larger than 1/4 inches between your grill's lid and barrel, please take the steps below.

Loosen Hinges

  1. Loosen the screws on your grill's hinges with a screwdriver.
  2. Check if loosening the screws on the hinges closes the lid gap.
  3. If loosening the screws didn't close the lid gap, please contact Customer Support

Inspect Parts

  1. Inspect the hinges, lid, barrel, and grill grates for any damage that may prevent the lid from closing completely.
  2. If there's damage, please contact Customer Support

Check Curves

  1. Check if your lid's curve matches your barrel's curve.
  2. If your lid's curve doesn't match your barrel's curve, please contact Customer Support.
