Well, I managed to burn up my gasket. I was starting the egg with the electric starter and got distracted my a fuse blown by my handy man. Reset it, but failed to get back to the egg until it was VERY hot. Needless to say, the top gasket was toast and the electric started was in a brand new shape.
I reviewed Naked Whiz's site and am leaning toward using his Rutland solution. Thanks in advance for any input you Eggsperts are willing to share.
