    Bursting out from where? How old is the smoker, and which model?

    A little leakage around the door is normal when the smoker is new. Once a creosote buildup occurs, it will stop on it's own.

    If you're talking about a hissing noise and a small boom and a blast of smoke coming from the top vent hole, while unusual, search "hiss/boom" on the forum. It's a temp inversion that happens within the cabinet occasionally. It'll scare the beejeepers out of you, but it does no damage. It's kind of a rarity, and when you see it, you'll know.

    It's the Smoker gods approving of your work!!!

    Mine used to do the same thing. It has stopped over the time of usage. Smoker is 8 or so yrs old.
