Gasket leak between intake and exhaust under carb.

I had a gasket leak between intake and exhaust manifold where they are joined (under carb). The exhaust surface was flaking and not very flat. I tried to grind it flatter and put the gasket in and in two weeks it started leaking again.
Question, should I try again with 2 gaskets or a guy told me to use hi temp
gasket sealer without gasket or chuck manifold and go to header?

I would try hi-temp permatex on both sides of the gasket. be sure to let it cure thoroughly before you fire it up. It won't make up for a huge gap, but the stuff works well.
