Fire Box Repair

edited 3:08PM in EggHead Forum
My fire box is cracked in a couple pieces, but one piece is small and causing problems when stirring the charcoal. Is there anything that can be used to bond it back together? I understanding the cracking is normal and all fine except that darn little piece!! Please help advise if you can.[p]Thanks

    I've been using refractory cement on my egg. I've rebuilt the firebox with it and patched it wherever.
  • Eggsactly how do you?, most people with cracking, breaking problems have been using JB Weld. Do a search on JB Weld and you will find multi-post, from the firebox, plate setter to the egg itself.
  • I'd be interested in hearing more about your process with the refractory cement (and where is it available)? I was able to find firebox cement at the local Ace Hardware, but its the black stuff, temperature cured, and only rated to 1000 degrees -it didn't hold up very well or very long.

    Seems like there were several folks who used a "laced" approach with holes drilled in adjacent pieces and either copper wire or stainless tig wire to hold the pieces together.
