Easy gasket removal

I have been planning to replace the gasket in one of my LBGE's. After I did some roasted peppers today I noticed a nice 1" piece of gasket looked loose so I decided now was the right time. After I finished the peppers I really had very little lump left so I opened it up and let her rip, well it only got to about 600 but stayed there for a while. When it was down around 250 I got a scrapper and started removing the gasket. It just about fell off, I guess from being hot. Anyway from now on when I plan on a gasket replacement I will be heating my egg up first. This was just to easy, it took about 5 minutes.

  • Thanks Hungry Joe.

    I need to replace mine and I was just thinking about the best way to remove the old one.

  • I'm in need of replacing mine as well. Thanks for the tip.

  • That's what I did too. Cooked supper on the Egg one evening, let it cool down to around 200 deg, and peeled the gaskets off with a putty knife. Like yours, it came right off with no effort whatsoever. Next day, I applied the Rutland. Let it sit for a day for the Permatex to dry well, and started cooking again.
