Kinuura Yaki #5 Kamado Firebox Cracking


COKAMADO

Recommended Posts

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?

I have no experience with your Yaki #5, hopefully someone here can help. That cement on top ofbthe fire box could be a big problem and might be a case of not kicking a sleeping dog. Good luck with this and post some pics of the outside,I'm curious about this
