    I bought my rutland from you many years ago. Just recently was moving it to a custom table  and noticed the back left gasket about 3 inches is smashed up or missing so the ceramic shows toward the grill area, however there is some left and maybe even smashed over to the outside to make it higher. In any event I was being anal and thought about replacing it but I did the dollar bill test on the area and it is still tight so not sure if I should mess with it. The dollar bill is and always has been slightly loose on the front of the grill but would not replace it for that. What do you think.

    Hello Ron,
    Tired of replacing my gasket and don't like slow smoking without one.  Can I get a Rutland from you?  Let me know how to proceed... Thanks!

      Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a not for profit service to my fellow eggers. I have now supplied 6,269 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! For instance you need one continuous piece 7 foot long for a Large and 9 foot 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 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:
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_3613_zps324d4ba6.jpg.html

      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.
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_3612_zps466a1547.jpg.html

      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 $11 for a Large and $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 you live in the US and If my price is acceptable to you then just tell me what size BGE, your name and your 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 is what you pay, but the value is what it $ave$ you for the LONG time ahead!

      Waiting to hear back from 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.

      Like most other states we have that “shelter in place” order for all but essential travel. That means avoiding or at least limiting even trips to the US Post Office. Therefore until this ban is lifted then instead of shipping my gaskets 6 days a week I will be only be shipping a few times a week. I hope you will understand! Since I NEVER ask anyone to pay me until AFTER I have shipped.

      I never heard back from you after replying to your inquiry about purchasing a Rutland gasket from me. Was there something in my reply that I can explain better? - which I will be glad to do!

      This Rutland gasket which 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 replacements that BGE® and others sell. 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 service I provide to my fellow eggers - not a business venture!

      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!

      I’m just curious if you wouldn’t mind telling me - why did you decide against buying a Rutland?

      Don’t worry - if I don’t hear back from you this time - I will not contact you again!

      Hi Ron, I apologize for not responding sooner. We thought that maybe there was a person or two who may have wanted gaskets as well so we held off ordering. We definitely do want to order two gaskets for an XL BGE. We want to have an extra on hand. :) Sending an email to you as well as soon as I hit send on this message. Thank you!

      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:
      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.
      http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Ronald44/media/Gasket%20pix/IMG_3612_zps466a1547.jpg.html

      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 EACH of a XL and a L will be $20. 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 of $20 is acceptable to you then just give me your mailing address. After I have confirmed the package has been shipped I will give you my mailing address for your check or if you prefer I will give you my Venmo and PayPal accounts 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 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 in my reply that I can explain better? - which I will be glad to do!

      This Rutland gasket which 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 replacements that BGE® and others sell. 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 service I provide to my fellow eggers - not a business venture!

      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!

      I’m just curious if you wouldn’t mind telling me - why did you decide against buying a Rutland?

      Don’t worry - if I don’t hear back from you this time - I will not contact you again!

    Hello, 
    I've been sent to you from my husband, he says your the one to get a new gasket from. He has a mini max, and from what I've read on your forum I think I should order 2 ($?)

      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.

      Like most other states we have that “shelter in place” order for all but essential travel. That means avoiding or at least limiting even trips to the US Post Office. Therefore until this ban is lifted then instead of shipping my gaskets 6 days a week I will be only be shipping a few times a week. I hope you will understand! Since I NEVER ask anyone to pay me until AFTER I have shipped.

      Since 2002 I have sold Rutland gaskets as a not for profit service to my fellow eggers. I have now supplied 6,177 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!

      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.

      The total cost for ONE gasket sent to an address in the USA is $9 for a M/M but you said you wanted 2 - BUT you only need 1 Rutland, but if you want 2 then the second is a mere $5 more! I also will send a detailed, WRITTEN set of instructions for removal of the old gasket and installation of your new Rutland.

      If you live in the US and If my price is acceptable to you then just give me your name, mailing address and if you still just want 1 M/M for $9 or 2 for $14.

      As promised 1 L Rutland gasket and instructions shipped today. I ship First Class but with the pandemic concerns then 4 to 5 business days is not unusual! In fact your PO receipt predicts your package will not arrive until Tuesday, June 2nd. I will be glad to send you a picture of the receipt with the 22 digit tracking number so that you may track the delivery progress yourself - just ask me for it.

      As for payment methods…

      1) Mail your personal check or a money order for $11 payable to me at:

      Ron Pratt
      314 W Woodridge Drive
      Dunlap, IL 61525

      Or

      2) Pay me $11 at my Venmo account which is: @Ron-Pratt-9 and if needed (some people do and others don’t) the last 4 digits of my phone are 9677

      Or

      3) If you prefer to use PayPal then my account there is the same as my email address of: [email protected] Please note the “dot” between ron and pat.

      By the way, PayPal is FREE to both YOU and ME when YOU use money from YOUR bank account OR from YOUR Pay Pal balance.

      If YOU DON’T QUALIFY for that FREE service then I’d appreciate it if YOU would pay ME $12 instead of the $11. Otherwise Pay Pal charges ME a fee and I LOSE money providing you this service! I like providing this service, but it doesn’t make any sense to me to lose money doing it! OK? No offense meant!

      THANK YOU in advance for your payment!


      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 I hi-lighted in yellow 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.

      Back on Tuesday, May 29, I mailed you 1 Rutland gasket which you requested and had agreed to pay me $11 for. The Post Office tells me the package was delivered to you on Monday, June 1st. Today is 2 weeks later and I still have not received your payment. I’m sure it just slipped your mind. I would appreciate receiving the $11 you promised as I carried out my side of the agreement. My mailing address again is:

      1) Mail your personal check or a money order payable to me at:

      Ron Pratt
      314 W Woodridge Drive
      Dunlap, IL 61525

      Or

      2) Pay my Venmo account which is: @Ron-Pratt-9 and if needed (some people do and others don’t) the last 4 digits of my phone are 9677
