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!

Well, I went ahead with it. I ended up not removing the bands because I didn't want to deal with removing the nest shelves and it turned out not to be an issue at all...First I made a jig out of some cardboard. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos I used that to push the material around working in small sections at a time...here are the final results. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Can't wait for it to cure so I can test it out.

    A scraper, sandpaper, acetone and a rag...in that order. I've been gasket-less for a little while now so most everything was already burned off.

    Package says to give it 24 hours to fully cure (at 70*...longer if colder out). I'm gonna do a spatchcock chicken tomorrow to test it out which will end up being around 30 hours from install.

    Nice clean job, I do mine up in molds then apply them, the one on my large has been there for almost two years now.

    thanks...I was pretty anal about keeping it clean! I think I saw a thread you did showing using molds to make the gasket...brilliant idea, I don't have the equipment/tools for that.

    is that gasket food and hi temp safe?

    You did a very nice job. Last pizza cooks both small and mini gaskets bit the dust.

    High temp, yes. No too sure about food safe, but I was using a Rutland before so not really concerned...
