Rutland Gasket - Thanks RRP

I received my Rutland gasket today and with Pandora alternating between Nickleback, Creed, Hunter Hayes, Charlie Pride, Wayne Toups and Sara Evans, combined with the detailed instructions provided by RRP, replacing the gasket was a cinch.  One of the tricks mentioned in the instructions is to place tape at 1/4 segments along the 84" long piece.  Doing so allows you to ensure that you are not compressing the gasket too much.  How slick is that!!

Tomorrow: trim and bake the gasket an RTV.

Also ordered a two-tier grate from Ceramic Grill Works today.  Thanks to NecessaryIndulg (Kristi) for turning me on to that fantastic idea.  I even splurged for a Spitjack injector while I was at it.

Thanks,

Rajuncajun

The problem with a problem is that you don't know it's a problem until it's a problem.

    Re- gasketing AMERICA one yard at a time!
  • a few questions.  

    1. that gasket looks pretty thick....do you install on the top and bottom as you do a traditional big green egg gasket?  if so, do you need to readjust your bands for the added thickness?

    2.  how much does the rutland gasket cost?

    3.  can it tolerate a lot more heat than the factory gasket?  is it better than going with nomex?

    sorry for the explosion of questions, but i just want to be prepared when i need to do this to mine.

    1. Bottom only, normally no adjustment needed

    2. much much cheaper than the felt or Nomex

    3. Rutland withstands 2,200 degrees - far beyond the felt or Nomex

     

    BTW you also have a PM
