I have had my BGE for one week and have done about 5 cooks, all at 350 or lower. I have seen recommendations of doing "a few" cooks before going to the higher temperatures required for steaks, e.g. Even the BGE manual says this. However, the Naked Whiz says that no break-in is needed.
What is the feeling here about break-in? If it is necessary, how many low-temp cooks need to be done before deeming the break-in complete? "A few" is pretty indefinite.
My family is hankering for steaks, but I do not want to ruin the gasket before I get started good.
