  • You can go without or install a rutland. I did nekkid for years but I would strongly recommend the rutland with the permatex ultra copper. Contact RRP about the gasket and you can get the permatex at Crappy Tire

  • It doesn't matter. Anything they will offer you will suck. I may have enough left over to help you out. I'll let you know tomorrow.

    Not with a Rutland. Mine's been on for about 4 years, thru all sorts of cooks (including 900° pizza). Still looks like new, except a little dirty. :) RRP's has been on for even longer. 7-8 years maybe? I forget.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Nothing like the Rutland/Permatex combo... Lifetime investment.  Do NOT use the cement that comes with the Rutland kit.  It becomes as hard as the ceramic and cannot be removed. Permatex retains some flexability and can be removed should you wish to replace the Rutland gasket.  (Don't know why you would want to do that, though)
