Top vent cracked off

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I’ve been loving my Big Joe III but after 6 months the ceramic holding the top vent cracked off and curious if anyone has experienced this before.  I’m assuming This is covered under the warranty but any suggestions to fix it in the interim.  A ceramic thread blocker to glue it down?  I’m somewhat reluctant considering this is a cooking vessel.  
 

Thanks

andrew

I second the JB Weld recommendation as a temporary fix.

 

How in the world did that happen?

Thanks so much guys and appreciate the recommendations.  
 

I was removing the KJ cover and the entire unit fell off before using it last night.  
 

It is a bit odd as the vent has never been stuck nor have I tapped it with a hammer.  
 

That being said the tri tip stilled turned out great and very much enjoy your videos John.  But with the top vent broken it is much harder to control the temperature.

Ceramic is like stone....1000 tiny little taps and you can cut a huge stone in half.  Every tiny little impact makes microscopic cracks....and if there was a defect in there somewhere, it would amplify it quickly...

 

Cook looks delicious though!!
