  5. I have good results using kiln cement Amaco make a grog in and differnt type fillers for kilns that would bond well with informed directions tile thin set grout that was used in construction is a outdoor pool type . good luck
  6. Rarely clean mine out the ash protects the bottom from heat same as your fireplace protects the fire brick
  7. Ive Used Amaco Kiln Cement to repair

  15. try https://www.kickashbasket.com/ most have gone to using a stainless wire basket in place of the original earthen clay cookware , which is quite different than todays modern ceramics ... best suggestion is to keep the temperatures under 400 degrees
  16. i love my mine i hope you can get it restored it is the next best refractory cement kamado next to the Komodo Kamado
  17. i really could relate to his dry sense of humor .. sorry to hear about this and to his family!
  18. i wouldn't remove tiles that are solid.....use vegetable oil .. and the top screw spindle i now use a Party Q Guru controller.. wonderful invention
  19. i started just like a tile job.. bottom up.. its not a perfect science to putting a flat tile on a round surface. just know your grout job will make up the difference!
  20. welcome Francis ....... you will find a fine group of people here we love to share info/ pics !!!
  21. alot of kamado owners clean the bottom ash out frequently i leave about 2-3 inches in the bottom for insulation seems to help with the cracks they develop.. do same with my fireplace insert in the home. little things make a difference
  22. thanks for the compliment on the tiles... get all the old thin set and grout off the is key to replacing tiles. i have had success using the kiln cement for tiles and interior cracks.
