Good to hear from you MayDay! I've had piss poor luck with the Rutland and Hercules on my ceramic Big Green Egg, and I just said the hell with it and chipped it all off and went with more JB Weld, its the only stuff that adheres to the ceramic.
My Kamado projects are on hold until it warms up. I sold the Fuji Kamado and the Hibachi Pot will have had at least 6 months to cure. The fire boxes haves been baked in the oven off and on at 500*+ with no cracking or bubbling like yours or my BGE, I'm feeling good about that.
Keep in August 1-2 for the Canadian BBQ Championship at Whistler BC, I hope to cook there if my passport ever arrives!
