    Hi Ron, I was referred to you on a FB BGE forum.  Looking to replace my Large BGE gasket, it's over 10 yrs old - I don't see smoke leaks but  a new one would be preventative at least.  Was told you have them, and that I can do this without removing the rings and the dome.  I'd appreciate a new gasket, do they go on the top and bottom?  I have heard only the bottom is necessary.  Thanks in advance

    Ron - thanks for your instant reply. 
    Sorry for not spelling out my need for two gaskets. One for me and one for my bnl’s son ( a gift). I understand the instructions - just one question - I am sure your instructions spell it out but does the Permatex go on as a bead or is it spread out over the 5/8 ceramic. I have viewed videos and seen it both ways.
    anyway thanks for your help

      I covered that application in the 2 page instruction sheet. My recommendation as you will read there is to apply 2 beads on the edge and then flatten them by buttering the edge wit a putty knife - and try to end up with a fairly uniform thickness of about 3/16", then you press the "bunched" gasket into the Permatex.

      BTW I've never made a video of my procedure nor was I even aware any exist! care to give me a link?

      Your 2 XL will ship within the next 90 minutes or so. Also the first XL is $13, but then the second one is just $9 more so $22 instead of $26.

      By going with the Rutland gasket the price is what you pay, but the value is what it $ave$ you for a long time ahead!

      As promised 2 XL Rutland gaskets and instructions shipped today. Please remit $22 payable to me at:

      BTW Eric,

      When you receive your order there will be a two sided sheet of instructions. I ask you to PLEASE READ THEM BEFORE YOU APPLY YOUR GASKET! I wrote them based on 17 years of experience knowing what will make for a successful application. And play SPECIAL attention to part where I say to fold the gasket in half and half again marking them with tape. Those are pointers serving as references to where you should be with each one fourth of gasket compared to each of the 4 quarters of your base! You know…12:00 to 3:00 etc.


      Thanks for your order...may your 2 XL eggs wear the Rutlands for a long time!

      Ron, I am also wondering if you have gasket / Permatex available for a large?
