I have had my Egg for about 8 months now and love it. About five months in after three different nights of pizzas at around 450-500 my original gasket melted and was torched. I went to my egg dealer and replaced it with what they told me was the hight temperature gasket. Here are the instructions they gave me which I followed 100%. 1)Remove old gasket using acetone to ensure all debris is off of the ceramic. 2) Install new gasket with 3m adhesive and allow to dry for 24 hours 3) Do two to three low temp cooks to ensure the lid does not stick, if you were to go straight to a high temp cook.
So I completed all those steps, then used the egg for about a month with no issues. Thanksgiving Turkey was great, last weekend I did a 18 hour brisket, all turning out fine. Then last night the kids wanted pizza, so two pizzas done at 450 degrees. On the second one when opened the lid the seal on top and bottom had 90% come undone.
Of course part hit the fire and is torched so I need to replace once again. Any advice on why the gasket failed at 450 degrees but had workded fine for cooks 350 and below. I thought that was why the egg was great being to cook at low and high temps but the gasket issues has me starting to wonder.
Thanks for your help.
