    Just curious. I don't own a mini but I want one , my question is, that flame looks like it is all over your dome gasket. How the heck does that thing not get fried?

    This is a pic of the starter burning on my first cook.  Maybe someone else with more experience can chime in.

    Yes.  With a woo from CGS and a pizza stone.  I'm ordering the woo and I just received a pair of 8.5" pizza stones from Amazon.  One stone is for indirect cooks and the other to cook pizza on.

    It's just like any other egg....the gasket is gonna get fried. Mine is well on its way.

    But yes, when you light it like that with a flame it will burn it.

    @henapple - yes you can cook indirect with the set up Freddy mentioned. 5 very large Turtle Eggsimage

  • You can do any type of cook on the mini. The gasket has about the same life span as the other eggs.
    If you want some cooking ideas go to you tube and search for "Magic Mini Moments". There are now 4 sequels. Plus a lot of other cooks.
    Enjoy your mini.

    2nd cook tonight.  So fast.  The large is being occupied by a 14 lb. brisket and a pork shoulder for tomorrow night, so I fired up the mini and cooked up a couple of rib-eyes and some sausage for the in-laws.  Good stuff!

    I just started closing the lid immediately after lighting.  Problem solved.
