    Ron,

    It is kind of you to make these gaskets available so inexpensively to the BGE community, quite a service!  Thank you!

    You mentioned it’s economically advantageous to order in fours.  I happen to have three buddies with eggs, and I might gift them a new gasket.  Can you please quote me 3-XL gaskets and 1-L, with the extra 18” done strip for all?  I’m in Edmond, OK if that’s a factor.

    Thanks.

      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 concerned you which I could explain better?

      This Rutland gasket which I have been providing for 17 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 I send along it is easy to do and should last you for YEARS! Like I said…the Rutland withstands over 1,000º which is FAR higher 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.

    Hey Ron,

    I would like to purchase a gasket for a Large Green Egg!

      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 4,617 gaskets to people in all 50 states plus 10 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 $7 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 16 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.
      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. 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 AND YOU PROMISE TO PAY ME* 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 want 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!

      * after providing my service to fellow eggers for 16 years at a mere break even then 2018 has been the FIRST year that I have had 4 JERKS stiff me for their orders and I’m out nearly $100! Why has a person’s word of honor gotten so bad?

      If you prefer not to post your address here then send it to my email address of: [email protected]

      Waiting to hear back from you…

      Hey Ron,

      So sorry for the delay. I was waiting on ‘memebership’ approval via the forum admins and could not reply to your post.

      As promised your L Rutland gasket and instructions shipped today. Please remit $11 payable to me at:

      Ron Pratt
      314 W Woodridge Drive
      Dunlap, IL 61525

      Or if you prefer to use PayPal for your convenience then I’d appreciate your paying the fee UNLESS you select the FREE “Friends and Family” option as explained below - otherwise I lose money providing this service! My account there is the same as my email address of: [email protected]

      Here is PayPal’s exact policy for FREE shipping for both of us in case you are not familiar with it:

      Sending money to “Friends and Family”
      When you send money to friends and family using your PayPal balance or your bank account, we waive all fees, so we always show you these payment options first, if available, even if you have a set a preferred payment method for your online purchases. Remember, you always have the choice to select any payment method in your account by clicking the “Change” link on the Send Money page. We will always show you if there is a fee and how much the fee is before you send money.
      Thank you! Ron
