    The Permatex Ultra Copper gasket technique is essentially permanent. The nomex gasket is not. It is probably worth the effort to solve your gasket problem for many years to come.

  • That looks great! I need to investigate this method.

    Question for those of you who've done this: is the copper goup flexible enough to lay a thermocouple cable over, or do you cut a notch in the stuff for the cable? I'm adding a copper gasket to my Large after my first pizza cook...

    Well then, what about the Rutland gasket in terms of permancy?

    The silicone just looks cleaner to me, every time I put marinated thighs on you cant help but get the gasket. The idea of my food in contact with fiberglass just doesn't excite me. I know this is going to ruffle some feathers, sorry.

    I did the same gasket about a month ago after frying both the felt and the nomex. I think the base has imperfections. I only did the base. I have a felt on top and it is working great. This seems to have resolved my gasket issues.
