      Mine! I will continue to be your elder! LOL.

      That Rutland post started clear back in 2012 brings back a memory or two. As of tonight I have shipped 5,021 gaskets to people in all 50 states, plus 11 foreign countries plus several eggers currently serving in the US military to whom I send gratis as a thank you.

      I know a couple eggers here continue to needle and make fun of me when I tried to reach 2 jerks who have stiffed me - each for $11 over these past 17 years. But to me a man who's word isn't even worth $11 is a pretty sick s/o/b.

    Thank you,

      Bill - no this is the first time I have seen this! and I wonder why...

      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 5,021 gaskets to people in all 50 states plus 11 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! For instance you need one continuous piece 9 feet long for an XL.

      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 $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 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 both the old dome and base gaskets and I cover that process in my instructions. It is not necessary to remove the dome itself from your band, 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:

      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.

      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. When properly laid your finished gasket will look like this.

      If you were wondering about the difficultly…it REALLY isn’t that hard to do when you follow my 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!

      The total cost for ONE gasket sent to an address in the USA is $13 for an XL. I also will send a detailed, WRITTEN 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 economically ship up to 4 gaskets for incrementally a lesser cost of postage than just one 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 my price is acceptable to you then just say so 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 and I NEVER ask anyone to pay me before I have shipped!

      Waiting to hear back from you!
