XL with a Cracked Fire Box

I just noticed after cooking some venison burgers that I have a crack in my fire box.  I am wondering if this is something I need to fix or let it ride.  The fire box comes with an expansion joint so the crack should not make any difference, right???

    You'd get a free one under warranty.

    Just spoke with dealer and a new one will be shipped to them with their next order.  This way I dont pay any shipping.
  • Use the cracked one until it crumbles.  Mine had been cracked into two pieces for over a year, and recently cracked into three pieces.  There are other eggers that have posted pics of a firebox and firering pieces that looked like a jigsaw puzzle, but were all still functional.

    My plan is to use old one until it crumbles then install warranty piece.
  • you have got to get every penny out of it buddy!
  • I've never been known for my frugality but with an unlimited supply of new parts under warranty, I would just move on with the new stuff and start wrecking those.
