I have been reading a lot on the gasket issues for a long time now. I was recommended to use Cotronics Gaskets, and was approached by a number of people that you should not use this you should use the Rutland Gasket. IMHO I like the Cotronics and I’m happy with it. By all means I don't want to put my family or friends in any danger. To be honest with you the two Eggs I use all the time and not for smoking there is no gasket on them, burned off a long time ago. Just the Large has a gasket for now for my smoking.
So what is a person supposed to do? I take a lot of faith in most of the old timers in here and have the up most respect for them, if it was not for them I would not be at the level I am at when it comes to cooking and great food and there techniques, so Thank You All for that.
Here is a thought, has anyone ever checked the gasket that is used on your house oven. Also is it available to purchase. What is good for all those major brands stoves out there then I would think it would be good for the Egg. I know that gasket is glued on metal, maybe it won’t stay on the Egg, and it’s just a thought. Maybe I am talking threw my Butt on this, it’s just my thoughts.
