I'm trying to reply to your message...I'm not clear on how you "solved your problem, but let me ask a question or two. Were the gaskets you bought just one continuous round piece? If so why did you fold them over? Why not just apply the amount (length) needed and then cut the gasket with scissors and throw away the unneeded amount? Just so you know - the reason for my reputation is I have been selling a Rutland gasket as a not-for-profit service to fellow eggers since 2002. They last "forever" since the BGE is not capable of ever reaching a temperature at gasket level of 2,200 degrees to EVER hurt the Rutland. My gasket is going on 11 years now and other that being a bit dirty it looks and performed like new. I can imagine your frustration of replacing them so often and at whatever cost the dealer wants to gouge you for - plus he knows you'll be back!!! This is not a sales pick but I ship to Canadian eggers all the time! To date I have sold 1,580 Rutland gaskets in eggers in 48 of the US states plus to 11 foreign countries! Just on Tuesday I shipped to a chap in Toronto plus to two other eggers down in Australia. If you are wondering about my breakeven price shipped to Canada a Medium would run you $15 in US dollars and the international postage is more than half that price! A large to Canada goes for $16 in USD and an XL is $18 in USD. As I always tell people who inquire - whether I sell you NO gaskets or ONE gasket my profit is the same... ZERO!
