    Yea it came out nice glad I didn't have to spend the money on a new one
  • I decided to use JB weld on mine about 2 years ago....I've probably had my egg heated to 700 degrees over a hundred times since then and it has held up perfectly.

    Jb weld works on plate setters but it failed the first cook on a fire box.
  • Mine broke 2 months ago.  Now I use my spider with fire brick for the same effect and it will never break.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    I've heard elsewhere that eggs mended with JBWeld don't do well with high temp cooks.

    I've used a foil wrapped clay saucer for a platesetter. The egg has been past 800- clocked the thermal and it was reading 200+. The clay saucer did fine.

    I kicked the leg off one of my large plate setters like 3 years ago and the jb weld has held up through multiple pizza cooks. The jb weld says its good to 600 degrees but I have done pizzas at 700 plus and it has held up. I am guessing 800-900 is the limit as I had my small at 700 dome which is 900 plus at the fire box and the fire box failed.
  • ...nice!!!

  • DO you know where you get Omega-600? I don't seem to see it available online.
