Out of curiosity and hoping to purchase the best door gasket and glue available out there what is your favorite or personal choice ?

Normally I buy 5/8'' gasket from the dealer off his bulk roll and he always sells me a red or black silicone tube to go with it which is a real biatch to remove when the time comes, this stuff welds itself in to the channel.
RTV, red or black.
I like Rutland gaskets, you can buy many better sizes on the website than at the hardware store. And I use rutland ezspread gasket cement in my shop for customer stoves. Works great.
I replaced my door gasket yesterday. I used the red silicone sealer that SBI sent with the gasket. Under the old gasket was a bead of red silicone; I believe it is the same as what they sent me. It came of very easy with a wire brush attached to an angle grinder. Got it clean down to the 'shine'. It was much easier than the cement type sealer on a previous stove door gasket that I replaced.
