Rutland/ Clean Burn

Obviously a factory gasket won't stand a chance to a clean burn.. Will a Rutland Gasket go unharmed during a clean burn, or will you have issues as we'll?

    The flat braided Rutland gasket withstands 2,200 degrees IN a fire that hot! Furthermore when that gasket is properly applied to the edge of an egg and subjected to a burn off it never even gets to half of that temperature.

    I've never had a problem with the gasket's always been the adhesive that gives and then the gasket comes off.  My Egg hit 900 plus just the other week as I got side tracked in the house.  My Hi Que gasket is still good.
