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

Gasket Guidance

Hi All,

I have been cooking with a completely melted gasket for over a year now.  I don't see much smoke escaping during my low and slow cooks, nor do I seem to struggle with maintaining temperatures. I do believe it is taking progressively longer to snuff the lump.  I'd like your expert opinions on the following options:

1.  Continue egging in commando fashion
2.  Replace with an OEM felt gasket.  (I'm likely to melt that one in short order)
3.  Replace top and bottom with the High-Que nomex gasket on top and bottom
4.  Replace with Rutland on bottom only

Also noteworthy, there doesn't appear to be much of anything left of the gasket.  I'm not sure how I can even remove what is left.
