Cause of Cracked Fire Boxes???
I read with great interest the conversation about trivets vs. the standard grate. Two questions:[p]1. If trivets don't cause cracked fire-boxes - are there any theories why they do crack? (Too hot a fire??? Too much lump??? Inadequate firing of the material when making up the fire box??? Dampness??? Inferior materials???) I know nothing about any of these possibilities, as you all can probably tell.[p]2. What happens when a fire box cracks? Must it be replaced? Can it be glued together? Can one ignore it and continue Egging? Will it blow up? (Just kidding on the latter). [p]I'd appreciate your wisdom on these two questions. Thanks.[p]Anthony[p]
