I'm starting to amass parts for my first heater and I'm looking at oven gaskets.  Anyone have one they prefer?  Stuff to avoid?

Any and all advice is appreciated?

Thanks
Rich

Rich;  Not sure why or where a bell needs a gasket but...  A standard wood stove rope type gasket is used under the 55 gal barrel removable lid, so it would also work for you anyplace else you think you need one.

Yes, my plan is to use a two barrel system.  I'm basing my system on the workshop Ernie and Erica led at the log cabin on the DVD set.  Paul described it as one of the most basic yet solidly designed systems they've built.  

But in the video they seal up the manifold with an oven gasket and foil tape.

Thanks
Rich

Another option might be the ceramic blanket material shown below....available from many sources.  Just do a search on "stove insulation".  I used it between my batch-box stove and the barrel that sits directly atop the stove.
