Now I know why I cant hold a temp below 225 I just foud a horseshoe shaped crack on the dome rim and the wife found one on the base running from the rim down to the fire vent air intake door. Looks like I will calling headquarters tomorrow. I already have swaped this out once before like about three years ago because of a rim level defect. now this plus not too mention a cracked fire box which is the 3rd one. If the damn thing has to keep being changed out what the hell is the use in having one very discouraged.

    Cracks in the fire box, you should be so lucky, me, these have been around 4 years makes no sense to change things out when they work fine. And of course my pristine gasket. Now this is real Egging.

    The inside stuff I can live with its now the main base that concerns me at least it can be changed at the cost of shipping other wise mine insides look just like yours :)
