    Hi Ron (RRP). I'd like to take advantage of your help with the Rutland.
    I've read your instructions and know what to expect.
    I'd like to buy a Rutland for a Large BGE.
    What do I do next? Give you my email here? My mailing address?
    BTW, I tried using my Egg without a gasket - too much smoke coming out and my lump burned off. I may need to adjust my new bands too.

      well Sir - if you read my instructions then I guess you are ready to order - so I just need your name and address to make it happen! If you don't want to post that info here then send it to me in an email to:

      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 not for profit service to my fellow eggers. I have now supplied 6,433 gaskets to people in all 50 states plus 11 foreign countries!
       
      I purchase nearly 1,000 feet of the gasket material at a time! 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) 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 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.



      See how the gasket is now wider and thicker? That is “bunching and you’ll get very good at it 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. 


      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 $10 for a Medium.  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 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 name and mailing address. After I have confirmed the package has been shipped I will give you my mailing address for your check or my Venmo account so the method of payment will be your choice.

      It’s just that easy and I NEVER ask anyone to pay me before I have shipped!

      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 of $10 is what you pay, but the value is what it $ave$ you for the LONG time ahead!

      Waiting to hear back from you!

      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 18 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 instructions 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 18 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!
