Anyone have a cracked firebox? I cleaned the grill out

last night and notice that my firebox has a nice crack in it. It looks like it's been there a while too. I did a good bit of high temp steak searing (800 F) this summer so I wonder if that caused it? Should I get a new one or ride this one out for a while?

    I have cracks in all of my fireboxes. It's not a big deal at all as long as they haven't collapsed.

    Morning TideJoe:[p]Here's what mine looked like last March when I decided to do a full clean:[p]P3260001.jpg[p]I carefully put the jigsaw puzzle back together and it has been working fine since then. I did pick up a replacement, but it is still setting on the shelf waiting for the day I can't use this one anymore.[p]Have a GREAT day!

    Have a GREAT day!

    MR H,
    in my case, the mothership is willing, but the dealer is weak.[p]a good dealer makes ALL the difference.
