    I'd pass for that price. That's a big chunk out if the lid. It could be patched with refractory cement. But that's a bit high in my opinion. You can buy the lids, but they aren't cheap.

    Offer him $100 cash see what he says. Use the other $200 for the lid replacement!!

    I agree offer the $100 and buy a lid. Or you could look at a WSM(Weber Smokey Mountian)

    Damage was not from ice falling.

    Damage seems to me was from moisture got thru ceramic glaze into the clay, and freezing action caused the glaze to pop. 

    It is called spalling.

  10. I think if it sustained a hit from something hard, like ice, it would have fracture lines, I think dcarch is correct. Get a new lid for it and enjoy.

  12. Big green eggs have a life warranty so if u got it just take it to the big green egg dealer ship and they should replace the top.

    I think that's a life time warranty against natural defects, not falling ice.
