    I will, I promise. Wasn't sure if I was going to be around next week and wanted to really put a good showing in. I was going to sign up today, but left the house at 6:30 this morning and didn't get home until 8:15 tonight. I'll be signing up tomorrow for sure. :)

    Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a service to fellow eggers. To date I have sold 1,295 gaskets to people in 42 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. 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.
    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 one side only - not both.

    “Bunching” is really simple.

    Lay your gasket down like this with your fingers on it: pix/IMG_3613_zps324d4ba6.jpg.html
    Now slide your fingers together while pressing down pix/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. pix/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. pix/IMG_0383.jpg.html
    The total cost for the one gasket including the postage shipped in the USA for a large is $11.00 and then just $3 more for your mini. If you live in Canada the price is slightly higher due to your higher postage rates. I also will send a detailed set of instructions for installation. BTW if you want to order a gasket for more than one egg, like for an egger buddy, just ask me for a quote.
    I'll just need your mailing address and if $14 is acceptable to you and typically it will go out that same day if not the next day.
    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!
