It's been nearly 5 years and probably close to 1000 fires in the Large egg. The poor thing needs some new parts, but for me, the money isn't flowing like it used to.
My firebox is now in 7 oddly shaped pieces.
The fire ring is in 2 pieces
Need a 4th cast iron grate
Dome thermometer is shot.
Springs are weak.
Anyway, my real need is the firebox. I was hoping to find someone who may have found a temporary way to "fix" the firebox to get me through til the summer?
Is there a furnace cement or an epoxy that would hold it together for a few more fires without emitting toxic fumes into my food?
I know I sound cheap, but now isn't the time to whip out the credit card.
