Top damper difficult to remove

The first couple of times I used my BGE, I let it cool before trying to remove the cast-iron damper that goes on the chimney. Both times the damper wouldn't come off without a great deal of difficulty. A significant amount of the fiber from the gasket around the neck of the chimney glued itself to the inside of the damper, and I had to scrape it out. Is this common? Any tips to prevent this happening in future?  Thanks, fellow Eggheads!
