Rutland Gaskets

Now that egging season is about to break out in full bloom it is time for me to re-do my gaskets. I have a large, medium, and a mini.
I've been following threads about all problems eggers are having with the gaskets and their adhesives. So I'm not so sure I want to go with the "stock gasket".
I'm thinking about finally going to a Rutland. I know on the large and medium I would probably use a 5/8" width. For the mini should I use a 1/2" or the 5/8"size.

    The 5/8" braided material in the Rutland will widen or narrow to fit all the Egg sizes. Just a little strech as your placing the gasket on the Mini and it fits great. Bunching it a little will widen to fit Large and XL.

    It appears to be a shrimp ABT.Shrimp shelled and butterflied with some cream cheese and jalapeno then wrapped with some prosciutto.

    Does a Rutland only go on the bottom? I may replace my gasket with something more sturdy as I am finding I sear and do pizzas at over 600° and my original gasket is wearing.

    Yes, that is the general application. It is thick enough that you only apply it to the bottom rim. You can go to the Naked Whiz site for a primer on installation of the Rutland gasket.

    Real close.
    Jack cheese slice instead of cream cheese.
    Fast cook with the prosciutto but harder to wrap.
