Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

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?

    You are now an Offical Egghead. Most of us have one or two.

    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.
