gasket question

I am new to egging and I love it!

After a 400 degree cook (wings, stuffed peppers, kabobs) when i was cleaning up the gasket was stuck together and peeled away from the dome, what is the best way to try and re attach?

should I just buy a high heat one and replace it?

    Scrape it off, and call HQ - they should send you a Nomex replacement.  The factory gaskets are no good at high temps. I'm surprised it failed at 400F, check your thermometer by placing it in boiling water.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
