Hi all, I am new to the site, but have loved reading over the last few days. I have owned a Kinuura Yaki #5 for about 3 years now, and it has lived at my FIL's house. Since this is the case, I am still a kamado novice! Finally I was able to bring it home after a long road trip! I know this specific kamado was purchased out of a Pachinko Palace in Sacramento many years ago. I am now the second owner of it. All things considered, this piece is in fantastic condition everything is together and in great working condition. As I was packing the kamado for the move, I noticed the firebox is starting to crack. I have seen tons of restorations on this page and know this fix is feasible. What I don't know is if this would be a good point to take the firebox out of the kamado fully and risk more damage (it seems to be cemented in place around the upper rim where the ring sits?), just to leave it be completely and see if it continues to crack, or just try to do a patch job on it while in the kamado. What are your thoughts?
All, I am new to the site and messed up the location of my post by initially putting it in the introductions section. Below is the link to that post. I am looking for ideas on small cracks forming in the firebox of my New Old Kinuura Yaki #5 Kamado. Photo of kamado for fun
Howdy. I stumbled on this forum when I was looking for a Kamado to install in my BBQ island. I read a post by a member named Marauders who restored a Kamado and I was intrigued. Coincidentally, I found the same model in my city and bought it for $300. It is a K7 [scary organ rift here]. Aside from the apparently typical issue of tiles falling off, it is in pretty good condition. In any event, I plan to leverage the work Marauders did and restore mine to working condition (see attached photo). Wish me luck.
