Default bowl repair?

I just got my new tangiers bowl a couple days ago but the rim got a small chip in it. I was wondering if there is anything that i could use to fill in the chip so that it doesn't affect the way the foil seals on it when i am trying to smoke. any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

do you have a pic you could post? it may just be a cosmetic thing that will not affect your smoke, i have an egyptian clay bowl that i've had for almost a year that has a big chunk taken out of the rim but it still works fine.

unless it is more of a chunk then a chip, dont worry about it. once the class has been fired you really cant do much from there. if is to big or bothers you enough ou could try to find a resin (epoxy) that is food safe and heat safe (not sure if you will really be able to find one that is both, and probably the cost will make you just want to buy a new bowl)

you could wad up a tiny piece of tin foil and put it in the chip to help it seal better.

thanks for all your ideas. since j-b weld can be used to repair china and other items that can be used for food or drinking purposes, i used it. It should be fine after it cures over night since its properties are the same as metal. I will let everyone know how it works out tomorrow.

ummmm i think thats a very bad idea, i dont think jb weld will take to heat well, at least i would try it on a piece that you put heat directly on

i do not claim to be so, there is another person here that know much more than i but i do claim to know some seeing as metal is one of my 2 areas of study at school

thank you for the kind words though

just let the foil go over the chip or invest in another bowl, they arent expensive at all

JBW resists I believe up to around 300*c HOWEVER I have a hard time believing that it would not give off fumes/smoke/taste while under direct heat from coals (wich get VERY hot). It's used alot in the auto industry where the previous concerns are not really as important in the engine bay etc.

It's a great product but Id refrain from using it on products used in inhalation and stick with using it for car repair. Could you not have built up a small layer of foil where the chip is so that it evens out? saving 12$ on a new bowl is not worth the risk of inhaling burning epoxy IMO.

their web site says 500*f constant 600*f for up to 10 mins and with paper burning at 451 i would bet that the coals around at least that much seeing as paper is wood
