Super Bowl and a cracked egg ughhhhh.

Super Bowl Sunday....fired up the LBG...planning to cook chicken wings. As the egg was heating up, I noticed smoke coming from the bottom of the egg. Upon further inspection, I found a crack in the base, ughhh. Not happy..... but enjoy the game.

    It can still cook just fine till you get your warranty replacement!

    Bad luck but shouldn’t be a problem using it until the warranty base arrives.

    Will do until I file a warranty claim. Any concern with doing an overnight brisket cook with a cracked base?

    No worries if the egg cracks and spews fire on whatever is below and that is not flammable.

    My wooden table would surly catch fire....humm, I think I will pass on the potential fire in the middle of the night while I am sleeping. I don’t want to deal with that. 


  • There was a post similar to this one floating around early today. I think the title was cracked egg in Oregon or something to that effect. A few of the guys, believe it was @RRP was saying something about Permatex Ultra Copper or JBWeld and how those would help fill the gaps in the crack until you can get a replacement. But it would help to minimize some of the hazards you were talking about, and the loss of heat/smoke.
