My XL Egg restoration

Recommended Posts

I may have missed the window on my restoration attempt. It will be -9C here on Friday, and I'm not sure I'll be able to get my refractory cement repairs done on the firebox/ring in those temps. My garage isn't heated so, not sure what I'll do. If worse comes to worse, I may have to wait til spring and continue to use my Vision through the winter. :(


Has anyone got any experience working with refractory cement in cold temps?

I am late to the party, but certainly enjoyed reading through this thread and watching your progress. I cook on a Large BGE and am familiar with their warranty. Something to think about, is that all of BGE's ceramic parts are under warranty for life. That includes original parts to the original owner, and any new ceramic part  you purchase from BGE as the original owner of that specific part.  So, if you do purchase a fire box, as the original owne of that fire box, it will carry with it a lifetime warranty. If your repairs to the gifted broken fire box aren't satisfactory to you, The option of getting  a new one from BGE will give you a fire box for life. it is a cost, but you would still be way ahead of the game. Another thing is did you purchase the burnt case from a liscensed BGE dealer and are you the original owner? If so, I think you could make the  case that it carries the BGE warranty with it.  If a BGE dealer sold it to you, I don't see anything that would disqualify it from a warranty. I dont think the warranty specifies how much you have to pay for it, or if the dealer discounted it. To my knowledge it just says you have to purchase a BGE ceramic part from a liscensed dealer and register it.  Worth a try anyway, if you are the original owner. BGE will ask for your receipt / date of purchase,  the name and location of the dealer. and the number  stenciled inside the case.  Really cool story. Enjoy your "One Piece at a Time" grill.
