@rrp - so, when the original gaskets wear out/crack/breakdown (whatever happens to them) and a replacement is in order, if the Rutland only goes on the bottom does that mean that the dome is gasket-free?
I'll never do it again I think the food tasted different after I did it..
@nolaegghead - is it ok to apply new permatex to the set permatex or do I need to clean that off first?
Just thought about this. Since a very high heat clean burn might damage the gasket ...if you lined the gasket with aluminum foil wouldn't that protect it? I've noticed I've gone through a lot of gaskets over the years. It was probably low quality gaskets and the any high temp burns I did for steak and pizzas.
