Re: Oh, She's so Sexay!
That makes sense. I may try that in conjunction with putting a little elbow grease into it to try and get the rubber grommet to fit correctly. If push comes to shove I'll order a silicone grommet for it. I feel like such a noob, because I did a search on here for "base grommet leak" and couldn't find anything, but when I did a Google search for MZ base grommet the first result was a review thread here for the MZ Horas. Apparently the rubber grommet issue is a common one, but most people find it is still airtight, despite the gap being there. I'm going to wet it before smoking next time and see if that doesn't resolve the issue.
