The large grill dome with table I got off Craig's List was cracked

Guy assured me there was no cracks. Firebox and entire bottom half was cracked. Paid $350 including table and another $377 to replace everything. Good news is that I have a large BGE AND a large grill dome both of which are like new!!!! Bad news is, I got scammed on Craigslist!!!

    Sucks, always got to go with your gut dealing with craigs and even sometimes then someone will dupe you.

    If it still cooks, you might get many more years of use out of it.

    Did you not give it a really good look over before taking ownership....checking for things like cracks?

    I did not look until I got home because I didn't pull the firebox. Not really upset about the money I have I'm it now but if I had known, I would have much preferred another egg to a Grilldome. I just don't like it as much even though the cooks are very much alike.
  • JB weld it?  Should work just fine with some minor cracks.

    I've already got a new bottom shell and firebox. Grill dome said even though the crack was minor, it was a safety hazard. No cracks now. Replacing the hinge and springs was a **** especially since half the instructions were missing, BUT, I got it!!!
