What's the Deal with the Seal?
I spent $1100 + on my new XL BGE two weeks ago. Made a brisket, a shoulder, two steaks and two pizzas.
I did the recommended three burns at 300 degrees before going for the Pizza temp, was told that cures the glue on the seal.
Last night while doing my second pizza I noticed a smell and as I'm removing my pizza I see the seal is smoking away. I also think that smell cooked into the pizza.
Now I have to replace the seal?? This makes no sense that the BGE Co. would sell these things with this known problem.
Now I have to mail order a new seal or travel 50 miles to buy one from a BGE dealer.
Any recommendations or tips in replacing this thing? Any other alternative to the seal?
Frustrated in PA.
