Mothership won't ship fireboxes
Did you know that the Mothership won't ship a fire-box by itself? Sorry if this has been covered before.
My firebox finally kicked the bucket a few weeks ago. It was already in pieces but I could still put it together and it would sit ok, but went to use the ash tool the other day and it finally crumbled at the opening and there's no longer any way to keep the all of the pieces together. So I called my local dealer and asked about getting a replacement. He advised that he didn't think they shipped them anymore. He called them and confirmed that they had so many end up breaking during shipping that eventually FedEx wouldn't let them insure them anymore so they can't be shipped by themselves. They now have to go out on a pallet. Now I have to wait until he get's new eggs or a pallet of lump before I can get it. In the meantime I set the broken piece inside the firebox to keep the lump from falling through and it's still functional, I just can't really stir up the ashes anymore. I was just curious if anyone has had the same experience.
