Thinking about repairing my cracked fire ring
Hi guys & gals,
Lately I've been feeling the urge to take everything out of the egg and sweep all the ash out real thoroughly then put it all back together. I just haven't cleaned it out any more than getting the ash out with the ash tool since I bought it 3 years ago. This got me thinking about the cracked fire ring (and possibly fire box). The manual said not to worry about it so I haven't. But if I'm taking everything out for a good dusting why not repair it?
I did some research and this stuff (http://www.omega.com/Manuals/manualpdf/M1239.pdf
) was highly recommended by another egghead. I'm just curious what the wise folks here would advise. Will it potentially give me a bit better performance if it were repaired? If not, should I just set the broken parts back in and forget about it? What advice do you have for me on this matter?
