First cook on the XL.. 2 pizzas & 1 gasket!

Well the pizza's came out nice, but the gasket is toast.

Setup was platesetter, egg feet, and baking stone with temp around 600. The cornmeal on the stone worked out great but I did have an issue with the raw pizzas sticking to the pan they were constructed on (suggestions?). This made for a slightly uglier pizza, although it tasted great!

Onto the gasket..Boy that thing stinks when it gets to burning. I suspect that maybe the dealer did not install it correctly as it wasn't in one complete piece, which I noticed after the damage was done. Also noticed that the lid seems to be out of alignment a bit.

I ordered the 1500 degree high heat gasket and guess I will attempt to realign the lid when I remove it to install the new gasket. Overall a bit disappointing but the pizza was better than anything I can buy locally.

Las Vegas is a tough place to find good pizza, especially for us pizza snobs that hail originally from the Northeast.

Thanks for reading and happy holidays!
