National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

    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.

    +1 for RRP and the Rutland gasket -  @carter422 I sent you the info. Be sure to also buy the Permatex Ultra Copper ($5.50 @ Ace).

    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?

  • DaveMDaveM Posts: 90
    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.
