So I just installed the Nomex Gasket on my large and am in the process of doing a couple of sub 400 degree burns before I do the first cook.
My question is this:
I can't seem to get the dome aligned no matter how much I adjust it. For the most part the it is aligned all the way around with the exception of one spot where there is a bit of a under bite. Is this common? Should you be able to get it aligned perfectly or is being a little off ok? I replaced the gasket several months ago with the old felt and have since cooked it from doing some high temp cooks.
I wonder if maybe I didn't bend the hinge a little when I tipped my egg over in November. I think it fell directly on the hinge. I can't see any physical bend but who knows.
Anyway when you make adjustments what bolts do you loosen and in what order do you tighten them up?
