    Great. Ill go and find the Permatex first then ill contact you about when to ship.


    I want to do a clean burn and have all the requirements on hand to change it after. If I want to do another clean burn down the road will I have to replace the gasket again, or will it withstand the temps.


    What do you recommend for preparation and what do you use to clean the edges?

    Hey RRP,


    I understand you are the Rutland guy. Do you ship to Canada? My postal code is R1A 3E5. Costs?

    Hi Ron, I was told you were the man to see. I burnt up my gasket today doing a pizza. I have a large BGE. Can you hook me up with a Rutland? I have a paypal account I can pay you through or I could send you a check. Does it come with instructions? Thanks very much.

    Hey Ron; How are you doing? I miss Peoria (in the summertime). We're in Florida now and enjoying life. I sold my BGE when we arrived here as I had a custom made s.s. table and the whole contraption was way too big for our downsized place. Guess what? I"m picking up a new LBGE tomorrow (I found a place for it). Anyway, just wanted to say "hi" - Al Joseph

    Hi There Ron,

    My gasket is throwing smoke and it is time for a new. As a newbie, I was lighting my grill with the lid open, and needless to say it torched my gasket all on the front top side. Also, Ohio winters get cold, and I've froze the 2 sides together before and have a section that isn't fully secured to the egg. I have a large BGE.

    If you're still in the Rutland gasket replacement biz, what's my process?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks for your comment....Actually, my egg is new and having to do a real hot burn to get rid of accumulated gunk, just like i needed to do with my wood stove never occurred to me.....thank goodness I will have the opportunity to rectify that situation next time......boy I love to cook on this thing....I had no idea what I have been missing all these years as I hated the struggle with charcoal and starter and the propane trail.....this may be barbecuing nirvana!

    Hi RPP-

    I ordered the 50/50/50 bag pack from SweetAttack yesterday. They took my money and said the order was processed but no confirmation that anything was/will be shipped. How quickly do they normally turn things around for you? Left a voice mail too. So far, crickets.

    From what I've seen on the forum, you're the guy to talk to about new gaskets.  I was doing pizza a week or two ago and while I was inside prepping, I let the temp get away from me and was surprised that my gasket had melted and pulled apart when I opened the lid.  I've used it to cook since then and it did fine.  I've seen a lot of people talk about Rutland gaskets and that you're the guy to talk to for them.  What are your thoughts on the gasket issues and the best way to prevent it from happening again?  I'd like to order a medium gasket from you.  Email me at whenever you get a chance.  Thanks so much!

      If you are asking if I sell them then yes I have sold 1,058 to date, but if you bought one elsewhere what product number did you buy, what size egg etc? Thing is I sell what size is needed for whatever size egg.

    Sir your payment went out at 9:00am this morning. Again thanks.

    Thanks for the advice! I feel a little intimidated with trying to create something myself, but will look into converting something made for a different purpose.  I think I am going to try to build my table first and look for a hot rack once it starts to come together.

    Good afternoon, hoping to order a replacement gasket for xl egg. Also would be great if you carry the adhesive. My phone is 605 579 6534 or I can call you if that's better.

    Also from Illinois, the west central part.
    I found the 1/2 fire ring in the 3.13 complimentary "BGE Life Styles" and have also seen them in the "Pinch a Penny" stores here in central Florida.

    Good Morning Ron, from all the posts I see you are the go to guy regarding the rutland gasket, if you can give me any information that would be great. My biggest drawback is I am living in Canada so buying from a US business like is a real hassle, if you know of a Canadian outlet that would really simplify things.
