Default New gasket on the Egg


The old gasket is in pretty bad shape



Going with the Rutland gasket this time and Permatex Ultra Copper for the adhesive

Found one of the spring bolts loose and fixed

When you take the bands off you want to make sure you put the retainer bars on it makes it a lot easier

All cleaned up, with the Rutland gasket you do not have to do the top.

All back together I put some weight in the back where the seam is and well close later tonight after it's all set.

What are you thoughts on putting the gasket on the top only. My thinking is it would keep grease and sauce off the gasket.

I got it at ace hardware outlet .com. I'll sent you a link but the stock number is for the one that I got but the picture is for 3/8W 7 ftL you want 5/8 and 7 feet
I hope that makes sense

It would be too thick top and bottom

i like the dome naked so i don't have to worry about flames and flambe's. only you can prevent grease and sauce off the bottom.
