The Feeler

Postby Suffocation Gaskets » Wed Jun 13, 2018 2:21 pm


I represent a company called Suffocation Gaskets, which designs custom, solid gaskets for grills. Our current selection is limited to the CharGriller Akorn kamado, but we are looking to expand our operation to serve the grilling community at-large. This post is meant to serve as an introduction (Hello, we exist.), as well as to find out if there is a market for a better gasket.

Because we are developing the product at your request (should you be interested), we can make it to your specifications. Are you tired of hassling with those fabric gasket kits that you have to hold or tape in place as the glue dries? Our research indicates that you are, as that's the most lamented complaint here and on other forums. We make solid gaskets, 3D modeled, flash, LASER, or waterjet cut, test fitted and proven. Our Akorn gaskets are stainless steel sheet, sandwiching a layer of carbon. You apply a thin bead of PermaTex copper (included), and drop the gaskets into place. Close the lid and let it set. Done.

As stated, we are looking to develop a product for the rest of the grilling community, so it can be made to the community's specifications. Want something specific? Need gaskets for other parts, aside from the main body flange? Let's talk about it.

So, what do you think? And would you be willing to pay for them?

Interested!! Thanks for taking the time to come find us!
For the sake of volume I hope that you are paying close attention to the Green Egg segment of the market as well.

Lava Lock is a really good gasket. What makes your product better?
