I'm in the process of installing a new gasket. Do you zigzag the permatex around the rim? I already scraped the edge, used stripper, scraped that off, cleaned it with nail polish remover. Ready to use a scrubbie for the remaining residue. I don't use a drill, no power tools for me. Next step is the Permatex. Zigzag? Or straight bead? How long to wait before attaching the gasket. I got a tubular woven gasket that is for oven doors. What's to lose at this point. Next time I'm going with the silicon bead and that's it. Why don't the other Komodo grills have this problem? BGE should figure this out.
