  1. Thanks to all who responded to my post about a small area without glaze. I'm glad that most thought it probably wouldn't be an issue if I can seal it properly. Correction about my comment that no crazing was evident. I went out today to start assembly and upon closer inspection there is quite a bit of crazing that I did not notice before. I don't know how I missed it. The sun was shining at it was very evident on most all the grill. When I run my hand over it I can feel sharp raised edges. I will contact the company to see what they recommend. Thank you for the welcome wishes and you all seem to be a great bunch of people. Very glad I found your Kamado Guru webpage.
  2. My situation is a little different. I am very happy to say that I could finally purchase my first ceramic Kamado. Upon my first inspection I found no crazing. However, on the bottom half of the bell, just before the midpoint there is a about a 5 ml fairly round area that has no glaze whatsoever. My initial thoughts are that moisture will be much more likely to be forced out at a relatively much greater pressure on that spot because it makes sense to me that the glaze is what makes the ceramic non-permeable. Should I consider this unacceptable, or should I use some kind of heat tolerable sealant on it? I know I don’t want some kind of heat/moisture blow out. I really don’t know how to handle this. Please give me your opinions.
