What are some indications of a fried gasket? Does anyone have any pictures of good vs bad?

If you can hold a temp down in the 220/250 range your gasket is still functioning. No matter what it looks like or if you see smoke leaking out, it is still working. Once it becomes impossible to hold a temp down in that range your gasket is failing...time to replace. IMO
Some people change their gaskets early, to each their own.

I could smell an odd smell. I think it was the gasket burning.
