    Good morning Ron,

    I would like to get 3 gasket setups for large BGE's. One for myself and the other 2 are for my back yard neighbors. Each have a large also. How much and how do I send it?

    Thanks,

    Hotch

      Hotch,
      Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a service to fellow eggers. To date I have supplied exactly 1,692 gaskets to people in 48 states and 11 foreign countries!
       
      I purchase the gasket on reels which have 157 feet. That way I can sell the length needed for each size egg.

      You apply the gasket using an automotive product called Permatex Ultra Copper – which I do NOT supply. Most every automotive supply chain store in the US (AutoZone, NAPA, Pep Boys, O’Reilly) carries the Permatex and it runs about $8 for one tube which is more than enough for one gasket. It 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 10 years old and other than being darker from years of charcoal dust settling on it it nearly looks and performs as good as when it was new. The probable explanation is that the Rutland gasket withstands 2,200 degrees which is far above any temperature that a BGE is 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! 

      Are you familiar with the application process 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” is really simple.

      Lay your gasket down 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 including the postage sent to an address in the USA is $11 for a Large and then just $6 each for the other 2 larges so $23 in grand 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!

      If $23 is agreeable just tell me so and they will ship this afternoon.


      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 my PayPal information if you prefer to pay that way. It's just that easy! That's right...I do NOT ask people to pay me before I ship their package!


      Since you sent me this via this forum then if you merely reply to the email notification you received back means I will NOT receive it! That is a real hole in this personal message part of this forum! Instead Please email your reply directly to me at:

    Ron, I have a Large BGE that I had the dome slip out of the ring and bust on me for Thanksgiving. I just put on the new dome, there is no gasket around the top of the dome where the cast iron daisy wheel goes. Do your kits cover that part as well as the egg itself?

      Lee,
      Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a service to fellow eggers. To date I have supplied exactly 1,634 gaskets to people in 48 states and 11 foreign countries!
       
      I purchase the gasket on reels which have 157 feet. That way I can sell the length needed for each size egg. As a for instance for an XL egg you need 9 feet or 108 inches of gasket so that you only have 2 butt ends instead of buying 2 Rutland kits from say ACE Hardware or Amazon of only 7 feet (84 inches) and then having 4 butt ends plus throwing away the remaining 5 feet of gasket as well as pitching the two worthless tubes of the latex adhesive in those blister packs.
       
      You apply the gasket using an automotive product called Permatex Ultra Copper – which I do NOT supply. Most every automotive supply chain store in the US (AutoZone, NAPA, Pep Boys, O’Reilly) carries the Permatex and it runs about $8 for one tube which is more than enough for one gasket. In Canada the chain Canadian Tire sells it. It 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!

I also will send a detailed set of instructions for removal of the old gasket and installation of your new Rutland. 

      BTW if you want to also buy one for a buddy then just ask me for a quote as the price goes down since I can ship 4 gaskets for essentially the same postage as I can ship just one!

      At least get it down to "gray" - problem is black tells me there is still a residue from the previous gasket(s) and that gives me concern about letting the Permatex get a good bite in the ceramic.

    Thanks for the quick response. It was the felt gasket with the paper back. The problem was the mini egg's rim was only 3/4 the size of the width of the gasket. So rather then cutting off the excess i just folded it over the sides. We'll have to see how it works out for him. Do you sell a gasket for a grill pro acorn? Also what do you charge all in for a medium gasket including shipping? Thanks again

    Hey RRP. You come as a highly recommended egg head.
    I have a medium egg and have replaced the gasket on it twice.
    A friend of mine recently inherited a mini egg. But the gasket was toast. So i called a few places and they said that there was only one bge gasket sold for all sizes. So i purchased one. When i got ready to put it on, I noticed that there is a huge overlap. So I pressed it down over the side and up over the side on the top piece. Did I do this correctly? Any tips would be appreciated.

    Cheers from Toronto

    Appreciate the compliment. Bought the rough stock at the lumber yard back in June. Glued up the top, but humid summers here are so unforgiving, I waited till November to jump back in. Then, as you know, when the wood starts giving back in results what you put in in sweat, you can't stop till the project's done.

    Ron,

    I've had my large for about a year and a half, and may be looking at replacing the gasket shortly. How do I go about ordering a replacement for my large from you? also, I picked up a much used mini from a flea market and will likely replace the gasket on it, also. It certainly looks like it could use it...I use it mainly for auxillary sears, so it gets most of the high temps.

    Let me know where to send money, how to send money, etc.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Stay safe1
