First and foremost, Thank you to everyone who post here to help the newbies. You guys put a lot of effort into post to help with problems. From pizza stone breakage to gaskets, I have been ready for it all and faced it calmly with beer in hand :laugh:

That said, I fried my gasket last night getting ready for a pizza cook. I knew something smelled funny and when I opened the lid... you know the rest :laugh:

Anyways, cleaned up the mess and continued with the cook. The pizza turned out great and love the new pizza stone. :)

Now, over to The Wiz's site to see if I am going to be a gasket or sans gasket guy :lol:

Here are a few pics of the za

    Nice looking pizzas!! I'm at work today and I'll brought with me is a Lean Cuisine pizza. :(

    As for the gasket, I wouldn't fret about replacing it. I've only replaced one gasket. Probably won't ever replace one again. It's definitely in my opinion not necessary. Use yours for a while without a gasket and you'll see.

    I fried the inner half of my gasket on my first pizza cook. I've bone several more pizza cooks and the outer half is still hangin' in there.

    How does the gasket get fried? Does it just happen or are there things to avoid to prevent it from happening?

    Those pizzas are an inspiration! Nice.

    For me, it was user error. I burnt my pizza and had the egg open too long at 650 degrees. Learned quickly that it's get in/get out at that temp.
