I have my first cook under my belt. I only have one issue. When I installed the dome I did the "dollar" test to make sure the gasket sealed all the way around. I was good all the way around the egg. After heating it up I noticed that I could see into the egg on one side between the gaskets but the other side was sealed. I would assume that this is just a minor adjustment. Other than that everything went well. I could not believe how easy it was to hold temp on the thing, even with the gap in the gaskets. I used an electric starter and could not believe how easy it was to get the egg going. Good thing I am on vacation because I will be smoking a butt before the week is out. I did also have to heat the egg back up because my wife insisted that we make a peach crisp. That turned out excellent also. I can see how egging is going to be an addicting habbit.
