Since frying the gasket completely off the egg I have noticed that I am burning lump at a much higher rate. Now this could also because its been colder out. The vent settings are enev open larger now to achieve the same temps (using a maverick and the dome to show this).
Is it the gasket or the cold temps?
For example I have loaded the firebox to the top and did a 3 hour cook at 350 last weekend. Today I checked it and almost all the lump is gone where as in the past I still had at least 1/2 a fire box to go.
