    prepare to get every answer...including none.   

    FWIW, I got my free nomex from the mothership, put it on with permatex orange during the summer of last year, and so far, so good.

    I bought the "rutland" from RRP on the "other" forum -- cheap, comes with instructions. Easy to fix, and has been operational for two years+ with no problem.  He sent it so fast, i had it the same day i mailed him the check.  The gasket was cut to fit my egg and the shipping cost thru the U.S. Postal Service was more than the gasket!!
  • I emailed the mother ship about my lid not wanting to stay up and about a new gasket. Still waiting on a response.

    I made a super awesome device for my gasket with Nomex, but then I knocked the dome off.

    Oops.

    +1.  Have them on all four of my eggs.  Also purchased mine from RRP.

    I've been smoking w/o a gasket for nearly a year.  Very little leakage and the charcoal goes out normally when I shut the vents.  I'm putting my into a new kitchen next month, so maybe I'll buy one.  Can someone post the URL to get the RRP?

    Can you but pematex in Canada?
    In the bush just East of Cambridge,Ontario

    Looks like the pematex is on Amazon.  Not sure about Amazon-Canada, but give it a shot.  It is $5.30 for a tube and is available with free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.
