Default anybody used....

"liquid" steel, or epoxy dough in their smokers or cookers?

I used JB weld to repair the heat exchanger on the furnace in my camper. Bad idea. Wouldn't take the heat, smoked the camper up with a nasty chemical smell, but that gets a lot hotter than a barbecue pit.

I used JB weld to attach the air intakes on my UDS. Heat is not that high, and its only on the outside of the drum.
So far it has held up well and no bad smells or ill effects.

That's an idea! Does it hold the intake tight enough?

I used Liquid steel and a bunch of JB on a Cheap Ceramic BGE copy and it works ok.

I put conduit nuts on the nipples and ran them up as far as I could. I then put JBweld in the corner between the nut and nipple, screwed them into the drum, and taped them in place with wide masking tape until the glue set. I added a conduit nut to the inside on the one with the ball valve. So far its rock solid.
