It was hanging in there good until a pizza cook. Failed and is all but burned away. I am going as is, if I ever change the gasket again, going with Rutland. My egg looks nice and clean though, and also a +1 for best of the west charcoal. Got nice chunks, bag was $5- and some change. Sparks like crazy but solid performance.

    Rutland applied with Permatex Ultra Copper is proven to work by tons of eggers over time.  For those still trying to make a decision on what to use, don't waste your time or money on anything else.

  • What size Rutland gasket would I use for a large BGE?

    84" for a Large & 94" for a XL. Give or take a few inches depending on how much you "bunch it" when putting it on.

  • Love my Rutland gasket. Got my Egg up over 800 recently and the Rutland didn't blink.
  • Sorry. I know this has been covered. But - my gasket just Chernobyled - where do we get one?
    Large BGE and Medium BGE
