Junior Oval glazing is cracked: A Concern?

Recommended Posts

If its really fine crackle in the glaze that's normal for a kamado. They are fired to 1200degrees and the pot expands slightly when that hot so when it cools down it shrinks giving the glaze  a crazed effect. 

 

If you are not sure take a photo and upload it and we will have a look

I agree with the above. crazing looks a bit like a set of antique china plates, not really cracks just some stress lines in the finish. I cook on a BGE and it has crazing in the finish as well. In fact, I don't think I have ever seen a ceramic kamado regardless of brand without some crazing in the finish. My egg had it from day one, however, it does not affect the performance of the kamado or the durability of the finish. My Egg is probably 5 or 6 years old and it still holds temp and cooks like a dream. On the original high heat gasket, I might add. The gasket looks like heck but it still does the trick.
