      Thank you for your inquiry! Please read the following as it covers things you need to know before proceeding such as an important part of the installation process PLUS what to expect from me. Then - if you wish to proceed simply follow the rest of my ordering directions at the end.

      Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a service to fellow eggers. I have now supplied 3,443 gaskets to people in all 50 states plus 10 foreign countries!
       
      I purchase nearly 500 feet of the gasket material at a time. That way I can send the length needed for each size egg PLUS my detailed instructions for their application! For instance you need one continuous piece 7 feet long for a Large, but 9 feet long for an XL.

      You apply the gasket using an automotive product called Permatex Ultra Copper – which I do NOT supply. Every automotive supply chain store in the USA (AutoZone, NAPA, Pep Boys, O’Reilly) carries the Permatex and it runs about $7 for one tube which is enough for one gasket. Even Amazon carries it. Permatex is a high temperature silicone gasket maker which acts as an adhesive to bond the Rutland to your cooker’s ceramic edge. Years later if you wish to remove it, it will come off.

      Frequently eggers will ask me how long does a Rutland gasket last? I reply that I honestly don’t know! The Rutland on my Large egg that gets regular use is now 14 years old, but your use may be different. The probable explanation is that the Rutland gasket withstands 2,200 degrees which is far above any temperature that a BGE is even capable of producing at the gasket level!

      It is best to remove both the old dome and base gaskets and I cover that process in my instructions. It is not necessary to remove the dome itself but some people find it easier if removed. Suit yourself! 

      The application process of a Rutland is one I call “bunching” whereby you compress or "bunch" the gasket back into itself thus making it both thicker and wider than the 5/8" so as to cover your entire edge. In doing so you  apply the Rutland on ONE side only - not both and my recommendation is it is applied only to the base, not the dome.

      “Bunching” (compressing) it is really simple.

      The gasket has a natural “cup” or curvature to it so starting with that cup side down lay the gasket like this with your fingers on it:
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_3613_zps324d4ba6.jpg.html
       
      Now slide your fingers together while pressing down:
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_3614_zpsf2e3d754.jpg.html
       
      See how the gasket is now wider and thicker? That is “bunching” and you’ll get very good at it very quickly.
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_3612_zps466a1547.jpg.html
       
      I recommend you bunch at least 6" or more ahead of ever pushing the gasket into the bed of adhesive. You want the Permatex to bite and grab right from the start with very limited moving other than to align it with the curvature of the egg's base. When properly laid your finished gasket will look like this.
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_0383.jpg.html
       
      The total cost for ONE gasket sent to an address in the USA is $13 for an XL and then just $6 more for your Large - so $19 IN TOTAL.  I also will send a detailed set of instructions for removal of the old gasket and installation of your new Rutland. 

      One point of clarification…I just want to make sure you understand that when you apply the Rutland gasket according to my detailed instructions then it is both wider and thicker meaning that only 1 Rutland gasket is needed PER egg - NOT 2. In fact I don’t even recommend putting two Rutlands on a single egg!

      f my price is acceptable to you just give me your name and mailing address and it will ship! After I have confirmed the package has been shipped I will give you my address so your check and the package can cross in the mail or if you prefer to use PayPal I will give you my preferred manner for that method. It’s just that easy as I NEVER ask anyone to pay me before I have shipped!

      BTW if you merely reply to the email you get from this forum it will not be forwarded to me - so please reply with your name and address to me at: ron.pat@comcast.net

      Waiting to hear back from you…

      I never heard back from you after my response to your inquiry about purchasing Rutland gasket from me. Was there something in my instructions that scared you off or that I could explain better to you?

      Yes, this Rutland solution that I’ve been supplying for 15 years as the alternative to the frequent replacement of gaskets is more difficult than the peel and stick replacements that BGE and others sell! BUT…when the Rutland I sell for FAR CHEAPER is applied following the detailed instructions I send along should last you for YEARS! Like I said in my response to you the Rutland withstands over 2,200º which is FAR higher than what a BGE is even capable of reaching at the gasket height!

      If you were wondering about the difficultly…it REALLY isn’t that hard to do when you follow my instructions. To my knowledge the youngest egger applying a Rutland that I heard back from was a 13 year old boy and the oldest was a 92 year old great grandmother!

      Whether I sell you NO gaskets or TEN gaskets really makes me no difference as I’m, not doing this for a profit - just as a help to my fellow eggers!

      BTW - don’t worry - I will not bother you again!

    Greetings from sunny South Carolina. After my clean burn today, I'm pretty sure I'll need a new gasket for my Large BGE. Advise on how we can make this happen. Thanks man.

    Ron if your truly interested in a BGE fire pit my  distributor has a new one.  Let me repeat new, in a box never sold or used.   They are on Facebook at big green egg ohio.   Located in Akron Ohio.

      Thanks for the heads up, but I was honest...this fire pit will serve our purposes far better than a chimena would ever have anyway. BTW is that dealer holding out for a better price? With the seemingly collectibility of an original chimena I'm surprised he hasn't chimed in before.

    Hello Ron. I just picked up an older medium BGE to go with my large.  Planning on using the large at the camp for my larger cooks and feed the family from the medium at home.  The new addition needs some attention especially a new gasket. Would you be so kind as to send me pricing for a Rutland gasket and what else you include in a "kit."  If it is just the gasket material that is fine, I can get adhesive and stripping wheel from a local hardware.  Also, let me know how to go about ordering from you.
    Thanks.

If my finger accidentally grazed dislike it was unintentional. I read the thread but wasn't interested in it. Again something that could have been handled by private message.

      Hello Ron I searched baking steel for large BGE and came across your thread from last year. Just wondering if there are any possibilities of others being able to get a group rate once again on baking steels?

      Or perhaps places to purchse at reasonable prices?
