new owner melts felt

edited 2:02PM in EggHead Forum
I was thankful to find archived messages indicating I'm not the first to torch the gasket! DH and I were quick thinking enough to salvage the felt, lost the top portion but reattached the bottom ring while the glue was still hot- I think we got a good seal- Can I keep on using my BGE like this or do I need both top and bottm pieces? Any help?

    jc-in satx,[p]If you are not losing smoke thru the rim of the egg than you should be fine. My eggs seem to fit very snuggly and the gaskets are worn very thin. The only time I see smoke escaping from the rim is when my Guru is forcing a lot of air in and the daisy wheel is nearly closed. If you are losing smoke around the rim than you may need to adjust your lid and or replace the gasket.[p]KInger
