    Most Whole Foods carry Maplebrook Farm cheddar bites, which will work awesome with that poutine sauce you got from gmac.

    Sure can - I need you to measure the OUTER diameter of that unit so I can quote you the proper length of Rutland.

     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 3,523 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! 


    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

     

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


    BTW do you have a buddy or relative who might want a Rutland as well? I can ship 4 gaskets for essentially the same cost of postage as just one so the individual gasket price goes down considerably. Just ask me for a quote.


    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 you live in the US and If my price is acceptable to you just give me your size egg, 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 just cooked pizza on my egg, it may have been the best thing i have cooked on it as of yet.  I was wondering i see people put the plate setter in feet down with the grid on the top to provide an air gap for the pizza stone that goes on the very top.  I have seen people leave the grid completely out of the picture.  I have also seen the feet up grid on top of that then the pizza stone on top of that.  Anybody that wants to put their 2 cents in on setup feel free.  I have also seen videos with temperatures from 500 to 700 degrees.  If anyone has any opinions on the subject i am all eyes.

    It's a BGE product. I believe they have them to fit every size BGE too.

  • My local Ace Hardware store in Apache Junction, AZ just got setup as a BGE dealer. After chatting with BGE support about the portable MiniMax versus the "Small", we selected the "Small" as our first BGE. The BGE units on display had been assembled by the distributor onsite, so our unit was ready to go. I will picket up this Saturday (8JUL2017) and take it 150 miles to an Airstream trailer only RV park in Lakeside, AZ in the mountains. Due to the dryness and relatively nearby forest fires, no open fires or even grills using charcoal can be used. So it will be awhile before we can do the initial burn in.

    Matt, can we just take this **** off the forum? Why is it I piss you off so much? I am NOT the horrible bastard you seem to have painted me in your mind. I bet if we ever met in person and sat down and had a beer or two you would find me not to be the **** you think. I'm not sure what or why I have ever offended you. If it is any of that **** that SGH started for some reason about "Ron's money" that is such bull ****! Email me if you care - I'm at ron.pat@comcast.net. BTW I turn 73 tomorrow so I may not be up for a while tonight.
