      Hello - I am having cataract surgery on Friday, July 1st so I will not be shipping until Tuesday, July 5th. Sorry for any inconvenience that may cause you. Thank you for your inquiry! 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. I’m NOT a business - I’m a 77 year old egger who for 20 years has been providing these Rutland gaskets. I have now supplied EXACTLY 7,698 gaskets to people in all 50 states plus 11 foreign countries!   I purchase several thousand feet of the gasket material every year. That way I can cut and send the proper 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, etc) carries the Permatex and it runs about $8 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 17 years old, but your use may be different. The probable explanation is that the Rutland gasket withstands well over 1,000º which is far above any temperature that a BGE is even capable of producing from the firebox to the gasket level! Since the Rutland will go on the base ONLY you will need to remove the old gaskets on both the dome and base and I explain that process in my written instructions. It is not necessary to remove the dome itself from your band, but some people find it easier if removed. But 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. If you were wondering about the difficultly of “bunching” and the application…it REALLY isn’t that hard to do when you follow my detailed instructions! The youngest egger applying a Rutland that I have heard back from was a 13 year old boy and the oldest was a 92 year old great grandmother! “Bunching” (compressing) it is really quite simple. UNFORTUNANTLY THIS BGE FORUM REPLY DOES NOT LET ME SHOW YOU THESE THREE SIMPLE PICTURES. IF YOU STILL WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM AND I REALLY DO SUGGEST YOU SEE THEM then email me at [email protected] 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: Now slide your fingers together while pressing down. See how the gasket is now wider and thicker? That is “bunching and you’ll get very good at it very quickly! I recommend you bunch at least 8” or more ahead before 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.  The total cost for ONE gasket sent to an address in the USA is merely $11 for a Large or $13 for an XL and THAT CHEAP PRICE includes the postage! BTW I have never increased my prices in these 20 years! This is my NOT FOR PROFIT service, SO tips are always appreciated! I also will send a detailed, written set of instructions for removal of the old gasket and installation of your new Rutland.  Do you have a buddy or relative who might want a Rutland as well? I can economically ship up to 4 gaskets for only a small incremental increase in postage so the individual gasket price goes down considerably! Just ask me for a quote. Quantities larger than 4 gaskets will be priced with postage at actual! 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 then just give me your mailing address. After I have shipped I will give you the USPO tracking number and my mailing address for your check or my Venmo account information so the method of payment will be your choice. While I don’t ask for payment in advance I would appreciate your prompt payment after I have shipped! Unlike businesses requiring payment in advance I trust you so I send it and therefore I would appreciate the same blind trust in me! Rather than to post your name and address on this public forum please send it to my email address of: [email protected] By going with the Rutland gasket the mere price is what you pay, but the value is what it $ave$ you for the LONG time ahead! Waiting to hear back from you! Ron aka RRP Re-gasketing America one yard at a time…

      I never heard back from you after replying to your inquiry about purchasing a Rutland gasket from me. Was there something unclear in my reply which I can explain better? I will be glad to do so! This Rutland gasket that I have been providing for 20 years now is a FAR CHEAPER alternative to the frequent replacement of the inferior and expensive peel and stick gaskets!!! It may sound like it is a little more difficult to apply, BUT when you follow my detailed instruction sheet that I send along with the Rutland it is easy to do and should last you for YEARS! Like I said…the Rutland withstands over 1,000º which is a FAR higher temperature than what a BGE is even capable of reaching at the gasket height! Whether I sell you NO gaskets or TEN gaskets really makes no difference to me as it’s just a NOT for profit service I provide my fellow eggers and I haven’t even changed my prices in these 20 years! 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! Don’t worry - if I don’t hear back from you this time - I will not contact you again! Ron

    Dear Ron,

    These last few months since I joined the forum, I have read many great things about you and the gaskets you sell.
    I have 2 large BGE that will require a replacement in the near future and I think I would prefer using your gasket over the (insanely priced) original one from BGE.

    I am, however, located in Belgium. Is it possible to ship to my location and, if so, could you provide me with a quote?

    Are you also able/allowed to ship the glue/permatex with it?

    Thanks in advance for your time in any case!

OK?

      Tim, Thank you for your inquiry! 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 EXACTLY 7,605 gaskets to people in all 50 states plus 11 foreign countries, which includes XXXXX. I purchase nearly 1,000 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! For instance you need one continuous piece 7 foot long for a Large. You apply the gasket using an automotive product called Permatex Ultra Copper (sometimes called Permatex Supra Copper in Europe) – which I do NOT supply. Every automotive supply chain store in the world carries that product.. One tube runs about $8US 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 youngest egger applying a Rutland that I have heard back from was a 13 year old boy and the oldest was a 92 year old great grandmother! “Bunching” (compressing) it is really simple. (Unfortunately this forum response does not permit embedded pictures - so if you want to see them just ask and reply to me at my email below and I'll send them. 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: Now slide your fingers together while pressing down: See how the gasket is now wider and thicker? That is “bunching” and you’ll get very good at it very quickly. I recommend you bunch at least 8” 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. What I do with my foreign customers is to quote the cost of the gaskets and then the postage will be on top of that. I know that to Belgium the postage for 1 gasket would be $17.40USD, but until I go to the post office I won’t know the current postage cost so I will have to get that information if you are still interested in pursuing the purchase. The 2 Large gaskets you want will be $8USD each and then like I said the postage is in addition to that. I also will send a detailed, WRITTEN set of instructions for removal of the old gaskets and installation of your new Rutlands. 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! As for payment…what has been working quite well for all my foreign customers is they pay me in advance using an AMAZON gift card. It is quick and easy and even if you yourself don’t use AMAZON I bet you know someone who does. If you wish to proceed yen I can get the package ready, and go to the PO to find out the postage cast. After I get that I will tell you so you can decide to proceed. At that point I will give you my AMAZON account and tell me your mailing address . After Amazon has notified me of your payment they will ship.   Typically it takes 10 to 14 business days for your package to arrive - especially now with the pandeamic. After I have shipped I will send you the tracking number plus a picture of the USPO receipted customs declaration form. Rather than to post your name and address on this public forum please send it to my email address of: [email protected] By going with the Rutland gasket the mere price is what you pay, but the value is what it $ave$ you for a LONG time ahead!
