After Sundays ribs I opened it wide open to clean out
Mr Big. It ran at 1100 degrees for about 15 minutes
and melted the gasket shut. I heated the egg back over 500
with starter logs but it will not budge. Any ideas on
how to pry it open?[p]Chuck

    A fish filet knife and cut between the gaskets as much as you can.[p]Tim

    GaDawg,[p]I did the same thing last weekend. I used a butter knife and it popped quite easily. I'm going to try and grab some time to search for the gasket replacement threads I noticed a while back.[p]Cheers,[p]Rotor
