RIP BGE felt gasket! What's the best replacement?
Luvs to shoot clay
I am going NAKED next time. Just close the lid gently.
I got the nomex gasket from [url]
it was easy to install ad the adhesive is attached to the gasket.
There are other opinions like-
BGE high temp plus super 77
Nomex plus super 77
Naked with no gasket
and a couple others:
-nomex plus hi-temp silicone ('copper') adhesive
-formed silicone adhesive by itself

I just changed out mine this weekend. Went for the Nomex, (my flight suit is made of the same stuff) I got mine from my local BGE dealer. I discovered that using a pulmice stone will clean off 99% of the old gasket/glue residue. I found these stones at Lowes in the BBQ section, it's sold as a grill scraper/cleaner... get a couple of them. It will take a whole one to do the top and another for the bottom. Didn't bother playing with the acetone, didn't seem useful since I got almost all the crap off with those stones. My new gasket went on with no problems, used the Super77 and tonite I'll know if the fix was good.
OBTW... be careful using a razor knife when cutting a "welded shut" egg apart. The felt gasket has much more give than you will anticipate, thus the knife can pull free quickly and cut your other thumb :pinch: if it's in the way...and you'll need stiches to fix that. :S
