It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

New Rutland Gasket for Large BGE

Just installed a new Rutland gasket on my Large BGE following the instructions by the "Naked Whiz". Boy, was this easier than I thought it would be. By using the extra tools (3M paint/varnish remover, pumice stone, and sabre saw blade) it made it simple. Anyone else who uses this method should have an easy time also. Particularly pay heed to marking both the Egg and gasket into 1/4ths made it easy to judge correct progress. My thanks to the "Naked Whiz".


  • Did you remove the hinges and rings from the egg before cleaning the felt off and installing the Rutland? Or can it be done without removing the rings? I just received my order of Rutland from Ron.

    You need to take it out of the rings to get it done right.

    Did not have to remove top. Was able to use drill and paint remover, along with pumice stone with top still on.
  • Thanks, fellas......Not going to get into it today. That's gonna be a week day project. Weekends are for grillin........right?

    Those planning on doing this might want to check with BGE Service regarding warranty and proper gasket replacement when using, pumice stones, sanders, grinders, any power tools and solvents.

    you certainly don't need to, Jack - I'm a firm believer if your bands are working and sitting properly why pick a fight? :laugh: Granted removing the dome makes it a bit easier, but as long as you can bend over and work in an occasional awkward position for a couple minutes you're fine.
