Hello fellow egger.
I just replaced the gagskets on my large BGE, and now when I try to tighten the ring back, this is the bottom ring, it rides up.
I have tried to hold it down wioth 2 1 x 4s but when we take the pressure off the board, the bottom rides up.
I have not tried the top ring yet, thinking I would do the bottom first.
I removed the springs before I took the rings off, as I did not want to warp them.
Weh I had the rings off, I cleaned the egg in the slots where the band would go.
What are your thoughts and or advice.
BTW, I have been cooking on this egg since 2000, and did have to replace the rings about 4 years ago as I had warped them.
