Default Help with cracking

Is this worth saving, is there a way to save it? I bought it in 2013 in San Diego with no intention to smoke it. I am not sure I ever will... But if I ever decided I had enough balls to light it up, can it be fixed?

That's smokable, you'll need a punch cutter/pocket knife to cut it anyways. Good luck with the rest of the process though

Just mix up some pectin (unflavored!) and brush it on to seal. Let it dry thoroughly before smoiking.

I’ve been known to hold my finger over a crack to seal it. But, in your case, you’re gonna look like a rookie clarinet student. Try Mark’s pectin suggestion.

I thought about that... I have some, somewhere. Guess I can look for it while I decide if I want to smoke it eventually.

Blue masking tape. Adds extra flavor too.

Bubble gum duct tape works as well. I recommend against the Duck Tape, however. Kinda gamey.
