Use for old fire ring

GQuizGQuiz Posts: 685
Cracked my fire ring on a cleaning burn Memorial Day. Talked to my dealer, sent a picture, and they took care of it. So I picked up my new ring Friday. I took them the old one. They didn't want it. Any suggestions for what I should do with it?

    Keep it!  You can stack it on your other fire ring when you want a raised grid.

  • Use the old one until it's not usable. Then put the new one in.

    use JBWeld to "glue" it back together.. JB is a very high temp glue that can (as I have seen from other posts here) be used to repair it and use it raise the grid. etc...

    I use mine to bank my coals in my weber kettle.
  • I'm still using my cracked one.  New one is in a box in the garage until it's needed.

    Already got the new one in. Will keep the cracked one for raised raised direct. Heck, I asked SWMBO if she wanted it for a planter. ;)
