Rutland Gasket - where to buy?

Did my first pizzas last night which were great, but I also fried my week-old factory gasket. Where can I buy the Rutland Gasket material? Whiz recommends Mennards, but there aren't any of those in Cincinnati. Any suggestions?

Assume folks are still using Permatex to adhere it?

On the bright side - only 4 cooks, so the old gasket material should be easy to remove!

    I always start with Amazon for all my purchases, their prime customer program provides free shipping. Then I go to eBay then Google. If all else fails I go retail.

    Here are the current Amazon Rutland deals.

    Personally I went two years with fried gaskets with no loss of utility. Put on my high heat gaskets and have regretted it since that very day. If I had to do it over I would have left the gaskets fried; in my experience the gaskets were fried but I had a seal.

    RRP is the guy to talk to! I contacted him on Wednesday, gasket in the mail on Thursday, and received it yesterday. Great service and great guy! BTW there is a Menards in Fairfield Township, Ohio (just north of Cincinnati) Where abouts in Cincinnati do you live?

    I live in Montgomery. I'll see if I can find that Mennards. My wife grew up in Fairfield, so we know that area well! We should get together for some egging.

    Also meant to mention that I can't leave what is there alone. It is not only fried, but it came loose. Big mess - though one that looks easy to clean.

    As said above, Ron (RRP) is the way to go. Not only great price and blazing fast service, but super instructions.

    Love to get together...perhaps in a few weeks as my wife just delivered our second child, a little girl Abby, last week. Just an FYI I'm beginning to get things going for a Cincinnati Eggfest next summer...Can I put you on the "interested list"?

    Another source:

    In the Rutland world, you really want the 5/8" x 84" tape (not rope) and that's their #90 tape.
