After finishing off some ribs today I cranked up the egg to around 600 to burn off some of the sauce and dripping left over from my first few weeks of cooking. Apparently my gasket wasn't quite up to the task. I've been trying to take it easy with my first few cooks on the egg and allow time for the gasket to set but apparently 15 hours didn't do it for me.
What's my best play? How necessary is the gasket, and if I get a replacement any suggestions?
