    Hello Doctor,

    As you know or might not know I have been providing my Rutland gasket sales now for 17 years at break even AND at the same price since I started. As of now I have provided 4,898 gaskets! My prices are still $11 for a large and $13 for an XL.

    When the subject comes up about base vs dome I always say:

    There are several reasons that I suggest that the Rutland gasket only be applied to the base and NEVER to the dome.

    First is a matter of ease since gravity will make it easy to position the gasket into the adhesive, whereas without removing the dome from the band it would be difficult to apply to the dome.

    Secondly, if you do remove the dome many people have trouble repositioning it in the band and messing with the tightening and adjustments necessary.

    Thirdly, if the gasket were to start to fail then being on the bottom only there is far better chance that you will notice the deterioration every time you raised your dome – whereas if it were applied to the dome, you would not be so apt to notice the problem until it had gotten much worst.

    But in the end - it’s YOUR gasket to apply it any way you want to!

     The thing I always get a kick out of is the idea that since the base will crack sooner than the dome then applying it to the dome makes sense...huh? The Rutland on my L BGE is 16 years old now with the same Rutland gasket on the base. Even if an egger loses both his dome and base my price of $11 or $13 isn't going to be a hardship even with the $7 price for Permatex to attach it.

    Oh well ~ please forgive me for taking your time to read this.

    Dave, could you post the specific recipe that you used? Your stuffed tenderloin looked great and I'd like to try it but when I search here for recipes, I'm buried in all kinds of them.
    Thanks!

  • Hello guys! I’m new here, so apologies if I make a question that had already been done. I started dry aging meet a few months ago. I did my first trial with the bags from La.va dry and using my home fridge. It lasted only 20 day but turned out great. Now I’m trying 30 again with a New Zeeland Ribeye of 2,8kg. The problem is that my wife keeps opening the refrigerator and temperature goes up sometimes above 40... So I decided that I would by a mining fridge to make it safer. The only problem is... I live in Singapore and I cannot find a single mini fridge which doesn’t have that built in freezer. I also don’t have space for an extra normal size fridge. The question is: does anyone have had good results with a mini fridge which has the built in freezer? I’m concerned with the humidity accumulating at the top part and then dropping on the meat. I hope I get some help here... thanks!
