So, we did our third low-temp cook today, hoping it will help the gasket seat.
1 lb ground turkey, mixed with garlic salt, an egg, 2 slices of bread, and some A-1. Rolled and pattied - yield 6. Yummy, moist, delicious - cooked for 6 minutes per side at 350, direct heat.
The brats took another 20 minutes or so, and DH loved them too. We made some extras, so we can nibble on them for lunch throughout the week.
Weather was sunny and warm, so we had our first lunch out on the deck for the year.
I cannot wait for summer.
