I have been reading some articles on temperature maintenance. Since I have some difficulty getting my egg to extremely high temperatures (my egg has no problem between 250-375) I think I could be losing air through the gaskets (or just not burning enough charcoal. I only occasionally fill the fire box to the brim with charcoal.
In any event, what I continue to read seems to indicate that it is important to keep the gasket in good shape. Being a newer guy to the egg...how can I tell if mine is in good shape? How can I tell if it needs replaced? How can I tell if it's leaking air? Thanks!
