New Gasket - First Use - Be Careful With Temp.

After removing my first lip smacking, finger-licking good brisket, I ran my temp. up to 380° to give my new gaskets a little seasoning. I almost made a big mistake. If I had taken it up to 400° or more I would have had gasket problems again.
At 380° the adhesive had started to surface, and bubble on the inside edge, going toward the outside, about 1/8 inch. Mostly on the bottom. But the top one was discolored. It wiped off with a paper towel. When I applied the gasket, I was very careful to get it outside the radii from the inside edge, not letting it hang over. It's going to take several more low temp. burns before it's ready to go over 400°. I don't know if it will ever be ready. Hopefully the adhesive will burn itself out.
