Default Using Epoxy

Has anyone ever used epoxy to fix a chipped or broken bowl, once its fully hardened is it safe to continue to use the bowl?

I'd be worried about the epoxy being heated by the coals, and what fumes that would give off... Be careful

As others have said the heat that gets applied to the epoxy is what would concern me. Much better off ordering a new bowl. Make sure to order a back up bowl for when this situation happens again if you want to keep smoking while waiting for the replacement.

Don't know what epoxy is. Beware melting point =/= the same as a point where the compound breaks down. The temps of coals can go over 500F I think so yah.
I wouldn't.
