gasquet replacement

A few years ago there was a rumor floating around about a new gasquet replacement kit that was made of Teflon or some other material than the original. What ever became of that? Is there such a thing.

    I believe you are referring to the Nomex gasket which BGE "rolled out" a couple years ago. Don't visit here often, huh? :whistle: :laugh:

    Been way too busy. Does BGE sell them over the internet? Are they better than the other one?

    Thanks

    yes and some dealers are now carrying them - initially there were problems with the adhesive backing and then they suggested a 3M glue. Mine were early failures and I never went back to them, but others here like it.

    thanks RRP,

    I went to the search engine & really got an eye full of discussion on this. Sorry to bother you befor I do my research. I'm coachable though.

    Skyhwak - if you go with Nomex make sure you preshrink extensively before apply it to the Egg. I think that was my main problem first time around. I also recommend buying a cheap paint to apply the 3M adhesive to the gasket. Spray an ample amount into a disposable cup or pan and then apply with the paint brush.

    or eliminate the middle step...what I mean is the 3M is rubber cement mixed with alcohol and pressurized so it is in an aerosol can. Spraying it into a cup and then quickly using a paint brush to apply it before it hardens has never made sense to me. Why not just start with a can or jar of rubber cement and brush it on. That's a lot cheaper and quicker besides.
