broken chimney

I broke off maybe a 1/3 of my chimney...ouch!  the metal top still fits over this U shape break and it still regulates OK.  My question is can I continue using as is or do I need to replace?  Any advise out there...

    As long as you can control the temperature there is no reason not to keep using it.

    it broke when I was moving it from one location to another.  It's on a roller stand purchased with egg.  It is not very sturdy and the wheel caught an edge in the deck and starting tipping and I couldn't fully stop the drop and when it did hit it was on the chimney.

    I purchases the nest with the handler and I think it gives you a lot more control when moving the egg.  The other thing I found is that it is better to pull than push the egg.

  • Man that stinks. Sorry! I move my egg a lot by myself and its very planned and methodical. Always fearful of the "drop". I think a new dome is around 200-250

    JB Weld may hold up, if you can puzzle it back.

  • Self abuse so probably not a warranty claim, never hurts to try. 

    Too bad, but if you have the chunks try the JB Weld. Good luck

    I thought there might be a "this is why I quit drinking" story or better yet the infamous redneck's last words...."hey y'all, watch this".
