Broken ceramic lid

edited March 2012 in EggHead Forum
So I knocked the little ceramic lid cover (smoke hole plug? Not sure of the technical term) off my egg while taking my cover off. Shattered into three pieces. I think I could glue it, but the wife is concerned about the heat and glue dripping on the food. Can/should I order a replacement? If so, where?

    JB Weld works perfectly!   Worked well when I cracked my platesetter leg.

    That lid would never be on the grill when food is.

    You can just keep the metal one on all the time... I don't even own one of the ceramic ones...

    Agreed.  Mine broke and I have not bothered to replace it.

    I never use the metal one on any of the three (was four) eggs. I use the the ceramic ones all the time. Just more careful now.

    I broke mine too when I was pulling my cover. Got me a new one just last week at the dealer.
