Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Rutland gasket for small egg?

My small egg's gasket (old style, grey wool) is toast. I find gaskets comforting, so I am planning on replacing it.

Called the mothership this morning and basically said that the gasket for my small egg was done, and Bruce just asked for my name and address and said he was shipping me a new one. Very pleasant chap to deal with.

Then I started wondering if a Rutland gasket would be better in terms of providing a better seal when I shut the egg down after cooking, and as a better cushion between the dome and base. Would I order the 5/8" or 1/4" flat rope gasket from Rutland? I already have some permatex to stick it to the base.
