    Hi RRP, further to my last message, I noticed that you sell the Rutland gasket and would like to purchase an XL Rutland gasket. I can be contacted at buzilo@me.com. I appreciate it.

    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

    Thank you for the heads up on the link you just sent about charcuterie!  I really appreciate it, and I will be checking both the site out, and your Rutland gasket - but not until spring.

    This whole dry aging meat has captured 100% of my attention. Trying to start off slow, but it is so addicitive!

    I would appreciate it very much if you would let me know how much I need to send you for a Rutland gasket for use on my Large BGE.  E-mail is grhouston@gmail.com, of course I would need the high temp adhesive also.

    Thank you very much,

    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

    Hey Ron:

    New eggheadforum member here, and new XL egg owner. I've read all that there is to know about the Rutland gasket, and how you are the world's premier distributor! I'd like to get one on hand so that I'm ready when my OEM felt gasket fails.

    Should I just email you at ron.pat@comcast.net and give you my address? Thanks!

      Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a service to fellow eggers. To date I have sold 1,381 gaskets to people in 46 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 Canadian Tire store chain 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 merely reply that I honestly don’t know! The Rutland on my Large egg that gets regular use is now 10 years old and looks and performs as good as when it was new. The thing is the Rutland withstands 2,200 degrees which is far above any temperature that a BGE is capable of producing at the gasket level.
       
      Are you familiar with the application process whereby you "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 only apply the Rutland on base side only - not both.

      “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 the one gasket including the postage shipped to you in Canada the USA for a medium is $15 in US currency since your postage rates are higher. I also will send a detailed set of instructions for installation.


      I'll just need your mailing address and it will ship tomorrow.

      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. It's just that easy! That's right...I do NOT ask people to pay me before I ship their package!

    RRP, please send me info for a Rutland gasket kit for my LBGE. From what I been reading in the forum I don't have much faith in the OEM gasket. Don't want to get caught with my egg down.

    Thank you

    Hey Ron, I was going to turbo some St. Louis ribs today. I need them to come off the bone so my son that has a broken front tooth can eat them easier. I was going to foil them for an hour after they were cooking for about an hour. Do you think that's Ok or should I foil sooner and not as long? Of course, I was going to sauce the firs 15 minutes without foil?

    Are you the guy I need to talk to about a rutland gasket? I melted mine during a pizza cook last week.  I was going to try it for a while without a gasket but I had my first flashback tonight and dropped the lid pretty hard.  The egg didn't break... but it made me want to put a gasket on asap so I don't ever hear the sound of my egg top hitting the egg bottom that hard again!

    Hi there! Just curious ... how much for one of your gasket kits for an XL Egg? Does your kit come with everything I need to do the swap out or will there be other expenses? Also, been seeing how the gasket isn't needed on the top or lid; how does this effect the use of my probe wires? Seems like it would leave a ridged or sharper edge leaving the wires prone to being pinched. Just my thoughts. Still not sure if I'm ready to do the swap. My original factory gasket is still in good shape.

    I have been posting this week.  I was on vacation in FL last week, so didn't spend much time on the internet.  I was disappointed that I didn't get to make it out to the eggfest.  By the time SWMBO and I got done doing chores and errands it looked like the T-Storms were about here.  Unless something unforeseen comes up I will be cooking at the Washington eggfest at Lindy's.  Did you know that Morton has a BBQ contest?  It's an official KCBS event.  http://www.mortonmagnet.com/mortonbbqthrowdown.php
