Yeah, Its true! The boy done lost his mind! My SIL called and asked me if I wanted another Kamado? Her BIL wanted to get rid of one he's had for thirty years to make way for a new deck, all I had to do was haul it off!
It's a Medium size "Hibachi Pot" Kamado from Japan
It's in rough shape, but it has some unique qualities about it, hard to see in the pics, but it has an outline of a mountain (I'm assuming Mt Fuji) on the lid and another on the cap, and a draft plug instead of a slider for the intake.
Got the firebox pieced back together
The ring is repaired
The cracks are eerily similar to the ones I'm repairing on my LBGE!
I'll be updating the thread as the work progresses, but here is the Large Sakura Kamado next in line!
Vent plugs for the intake
I had to have my local Ace Hardware order more Furnace cement!!
