Gasket Help

I know the gasket topic has been discussed many times, but now it is my turn. My LBGE is about a year old, and my buddy's egg is a week old. He burned his gasket this weekend, and my is getting close to needing a replacement. I wanted to know the pros and cons of going with a rutland gasket vs the felt ones that come on the egg, and secondly, where can I purchase either of these products. I am leaning towards the rutland if it means that I will lessen the chance of melting it. Any and all help/suggestions/how to's welcome!

Thanks in advance,

    rutland is frowned upon by BGE and rutland. friable fiberglas fibers are the issue.

    BGE is offering a nomex gasket. call the mothership. they have the gasket issue completely solved, officially.

    I was in a home builders show room recently and they had a VIKING C-4 BGE look alike in a metal case for $2300. Can buy lots of BGEs and toys for that however it had a grey gasket with shiny white/silver threads. anyone know about this type of gasket?

    frankly, sounds like rutland

    I highly recommend Cotronics ceramic tape w/out adhesive
    (1500 deg.). Use hi-temp silicone sealant to hold it in place. I have used this on both of my Large GE's.
