I'm into hour 11 of my first overnight since my gasket went bye-bye. 14lb packer has held steady b/w 235-250º throughout. The mothership sent a replacement gasket as soon as I let them know about my former one but figured i'd give it a go without b/c it seems like quite a job to replace and lots of folks here say they egg without. If things hold as they have been for the next few hours, my next post with pics will be titled "gasket schmasket"
