Broken XL Platesetter

I broke mine attempting to put it on with some aggressive flames burning. It’s a clean break and I was hoping someone has successfully glued one back together and could let me know what adhesive works. Thanks!

    Check ceramic grill store. If my PS broke that’s what I’d do.

    Don't bother glueing it back together, it's just going to fail again.  

    Where did it crack?  If by a leg, make yourself a pizza stone.  Otherwise make a half stone.  Either way, you're out cash, but you can salvage some ceramic out of it.

    Depends on where the break is. How much stress is at the mend.
    Thank you,

    Good reason to get an adjustable rig

    It’s clean break and is broken right down the middle - essentially 50/50. I used the piece that had 2 legs yesterday for a butt I smoked for 16 hours and it turned out great. I’ve read about cereamic glue that can withstand high temps and wanted to give it a shot. Thanks for the comments!

    Btw, how bbq old is it???  Covered under warranty.  Not lifetime, but would be if it's only been a few years.

    I JB welded a leg on my large years ago but I don't know about right down the middle.
