What type of epoxy do you use for firebox?

My firebox is cracked and I want to glue it back together. Some of y'all mention epoxy to do so. What type/specs do I need?

    I would give JB Weld a try- that stuff will fix anything.

    What Wolfpack said.  There's also an even better refractory adhesive on one of these threads.  It ain't cheap though.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    Jb weld will not work on the fire box. I tried it and it failed the first cook. It worked great on my platesetter but I think the firebox just gets too hot.

    ? Warranty ? Ive never looked into it, does the mother ship not cover the box?
